Happy Valentine's Day a Rictameter Poem
To all of you
Happy Valentine's Day
You all make my days happier
Through reading, sharing, writting, everyday
Don't know what I'd do without you
All my inspiration
I get from you
This is my first attempt at a Rictameter Poem. I hope that I did this correctly.
"A rictameter is a nine-line syllabic structure typically used in poetry. The lines start at two syllables, incrementing upward by two to ten in the fifth line and ending with the same two syllable word as the first line."
"Because this form involves a fixed syllabic count, it is a natural accompaniment with haiku and other fixed-syllabic poetry forms."
