The Rictameter
I found this form on the Internet - it is not a difficult form to try. The Rictameter. How to build up your rictameter:

line 1 - 2 syllables - same as line 9
line 2 - 4 syllables
line 3 - 6 syllables
line 4 - 8 syllables
line 5 - 10 syllables
line 6 - 8 syllables
line 7 - 6 syllables
line 8 - 4 syllables
line 9 - 2 syllables - same as line 1

As you can see, line 1 and 9 are the same.



An example;


summer
a gentle breeze
an open door to the
garden, invites you to come in
so you can drink with me a cup of tea
or coffee, what ever you like…
take a seat near the tree
cherish the sun…
summer
