Temptation's Bait (Etheree)

by Debbie   Jun 4, 2007

Lewd attempts toward drive of happiness,
Crossed the threshold of unsuspecting
Consciousness, perceiving the world
Though constrained sightless passions-
With willful bribes polished
By tongues of sweet, sly
Deceit, as vim
And vigor
Gleam in

The poetry form, Etheree, consists of 10 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 syllables. Etheree can
also be reversed and written 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    I wouldn't have enjoyed it like this if I hadn't tried writing an Etheree myself.
    I do like this form of poetry very very much :)

    Hm. Not too bad. I'm not a BIG fan of Ethree's, but this wasn't too bad. I didn't much like the ending, but the rest was brilliantly written.
