cat-poet

The Etheree is a 10-lined poetry form with an ascending syllable count of 1 to 10 through lines 1 to 10. Therefore, line 1 has 1 syllable, line 2 has 2, and so on ending with line 10 and 10 syllables.

Example: Elemental by Jez Farmer

Fire
Air, Earth
Water sprites
combined as one.
Life’s true elements
symbolic Pagan thought
folklore lies within quarters.
Nature’s pathways respecting love
Yule on to Samhain, Spring to winter
life’s changing circles seen in Celtic wynds.
