Diamante Poems

Page history last edited by Kelley Mason 13 years, 5 months ago

A diamante poem is a seven-lined shape poem that forms a diamond. The poem can contain the same topic, or it may be about two opposing (opposite) topics. Each line need not rhyme; however, they use specific types of words like -ing and adjectives. Check out this example about a familiar shape and familiar family friend:


Symmetrical, conventional
Shaping, measuring, balancing
Boxes, rooms,
clocks, halos
Encircling, circumnavigating, enclosing
Round, continuous






Sweet, young

Running, sleeping, playing

Ball, leash, treats, backyards

Barking, eating, fetching

Playful, silly
