Albert's Poetry Cafe "In A Nutshell" ~ TETRACTYS with Helena November 5, 2010 - November 17, 2010
Tetractys should express a complete thought, profound or comic, witty or wise using 20 syllables. They can be written with more than one verse but each subsequent verse must invert the syllable count. There is no limit to the number of verses. The structure is:
line 1 - 1 syllable
line 2 - 2 syllables
line 3 - 3 syllables
line 4 - 4 syllables
line 5 - 10 syllables
If you are
aimless and have
nothing to do or nowhere to go, work.
execution of all the basic skills.
Thanks to the below site for the inspiration and where you can find more examples of Tetractys.
