Republic Day in Rictameter



Republic Day in Rictameter



wait for picture


had many names
and no face, just wrinkles
For her, nothing. But some twinkles,
she had asked for her starry-eyed children
So she got a constitution
and two more names
None sweeter than


(c) Rajendra






Rictameter is a form of poetry with nine lines. The format is
simple. Starting your first line with a two syllable word, you then
consecutively increase the number of syllables per line by two. i.e.
2,4,6,8,10 Then down again, 8,6,4,2 Making the final line the same
two syllable word you began with.
