Desired love. (Rictameter)

by Steven Beesley   Jul 22, 2005

So much
How can I count
The ways that I love thee
Can you see what you mean to me
With each thought of you brings such joy to me
How can I but not fantasize
The way you laugh and smile
Alluring charm
So much...

A rictameter is a nine line poetry form. The 1st and the last lines are the same and the syllable count is as follows: -

Line 1 - 2 syllables - same as line 9
Line 2 - 4 syllables
Line 3 - 6 syllables
Line 4 - 8 syllables
Line 5 - 10 syllables
Line 6 - 8 syllables
Line 7 - 6 syllables
Line 8 - 4 syllables
Line 9 - 2 syllables - same as line 1

    Steven, as I stated previously, wonderful job on the Rictameter. It was and is magnificent work. By the way Steven, you have been accepted as a judge, and who knows you might want to be chief judge of the Rictameters in the "Romantic Forms Challenge". You can check to see what is still available to be lead, chief judge in and formally accept position here;

    Thanks Steven, for volunteering to be one of my judges, and for your participation all in all.
