Andaree

Created by Andrea Dietrich with a rhyming scheme AaBbCbcbbaA. The first line and the last line are both the same 11- syllable line. This form decreases in line length with each line getting progressively smaller by 2 syllables until reaching the one-syllable word in the middle of the poem. Then each of the lines increase progressively by 2 syllables until the final line of eleven syllables is met: (11/9/7/5/3/1/3/5/7/9/11). The middle word should be a word very important to the theme. It appears somewhere in the title or can be the title itself and that middle word also rhymes with lines 3 4 8 and 9. Centering the poem is also recommended for an hourglass effect!



There is nothing more heartening than a smile if you haven’t seen one for a while you hope it will never end it's not just pretend with a best friend it's no jest the Lord chose to send an angel to help you mend one that does not put love on trial there is nothing more heartening than a smile (Andaree) Feb.07,2018

Oh Emile this is an absolutely perfect Andaree on a theme that is very close to my heart on many levels .i have written one about my son and found it such a challenge to get the rhyme as syllable count to be accurate and it took me a very long time. adding to my faves:-) hugs Jan xx
