Diamante Poems

Page history last edited by Kelley Mason 12 years, 8 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:

 

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