Boobis Logo Diamante Poems Made Easy

Iris Tiedt created an unrhymed form of poetry that combines opposites in a single, seven-line poem: the word of the last line is the opposite of the word of the first line. The lines in between describe either the starting word or its opposite. On paper these poems look like a diamond, so we call them after the Italian word for diamond-- diamante. Look out the example diamante at the bottom of this page, then follow the form to create your own. Be sure to follow the format!
