DIMINISHED HEXAVERSE


A poem containing stanzas of 5 lines, then 4 lines, then 3 lines, then 2 lines, ending with one word. The syllables in each stanza correspond to the number of lines, i.e. 5 in each line in the first stanza, 4 in the second stanza and so on. Make your poem five stanzas long. Please follow directions carefully to avoid having your submitted poem disqualified.


Example:

IF I HAD POWER

If I had power
To change the whole world,
Utter magic words
And make all things right,
Say, Let there be peace,

I would do it
In a heartbeat,
But who am I
To change the world?

Just a man
With a dream
Powerless.

I pray
God grants

Peace.
