FAITHFUL SERVANT

 

 

It

rages

still burning

muses call me

their faithful servant

but I rise and rebel

fire waning but glowing

I attempt to make them serve me

so things start to get interesting

Well done

A well-written Etheree poem. It reads so naturally, the reader almost forgets this poem is written to strict structural lines. Well done!

I'll look up the term

I'll look up the term Etheree.  I've been calling them nonette poems all along.

Nonette

No - you are right, your poem is a nonette. An Etheree has 10 lines, starting with one syllable, increasing by one in each line to end with 10. I got it wrong! Happy writing!

I'll have to tackle that

I'll have to tackle that style.  What's an extra 10 syllables in the grand scheme of things?
