IGPoetSecretSanta 2016 Stefanie Maria Write S

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

There is wide scope for creativity as you can write more than one verse and invert your syllable count from one to the next, resulting in a double Etheree: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 10, 9, 8, 7, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1; through to a Triple Etheree, Quadruple Etheree, and so on.

The topic is at the discretion of the poet and rhyming is optional.
