Step Through Into Fantasy: An Etheree

Steppoetry-header

And Walk

Stop and Talk

Kneel at the Door

On the Floor Before

And After Phantasies

With All to Lose to Regain

Some Very Changed Reality

Far Beyond Any Simplistic Plea

And Far Past the Life of Banality

So Forever Standing Tall as You Fall

As You Crawl into What is Bizarre

Within Phantasy Land not Far

Under the Bright Nightly Star

Wherein You Hear the Name

Of Your Childhood Fame

So Stake Your Claim

In Other Realms

With No Talk

But Walk

Stride


Note From Colleen’s Blog: The Etheree poem consists of ten lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 syllables. Etheree can also be reversed and written 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. The trick is to create a memorable message within the required format. Poets can get creative and write an Etheree with more than one verse, but the idea is to follow suit with an inverted syllable count. Reversed Etheree Syllable Count: 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Double Etheree Syllable Count: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 10, 9, 8, 7, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
