INFORM POETS – NONET

Since yesterday was the first FULL day of Autumn, we will FALL back on an old favorite form, the Nonet.

As you recall, a Nonet is a nine line poem, with the first line containing nine syllables, the next eight, so on until the last line has one syllable.

So allow your syllables to FALL and write a brilliantly hued poem in keeping with the spirit of the Autumnal Equinox!

WALT’S NONET:

ALL THINGS AUTUMNAL

It seems the year has been so fleeting,
and some moments bear repeating.
Soon, the foliage will change
rearranging this scene.
The air is cool, chill
right to the bone.
Home is where
the hearth
glows.
