I counted with Ryhming Syllable counter and arrived with 33 syllables.
The “Epulaeryu” poem is about delicious food. It consists of seven lines with thirty-three
(33) syllables. The first line has seven syllables, the second line five, the third line
seven, the fourth line five, the fifth line five, the sixth line three, and the seventh
line has only one syllable which ends with an exclamation mark. Each line has one thought
relating to the main course. Therefore, this new poetic form, the Epulaeryu, which has
corresponding lines built around the main course, and ending with an exclamation point,
concludes with the ending line expressing the writer’s excitement and feelings about the
poem. Created by Jospeh Spence. My humble efforts Joseph.
HAHAHA LOL Forgot the Hamburger. :(
