A nonet

"As if I am flying in the air,
a pioneer! I'm ambitious.
All my tutors tell me so,
do not  think I'm bumptious." 

That's all that he said
then fell asleep
with angels
my sweet
child.

A while back I posted a blog of poetry A-Z the Nonet was in there for all to see but I have since taken the A-Z off.
Here is what it said about a nonet..

Nonet
A nonet has nine lines.
The first line has nine syllables, the second line eight syllables, the third line seven syllables, etc…
Until line nine that finishes with one syllable. It can be on any subject and rhyming is optional.
line 1 – 9 syllables
line 2 – 8 syllables
line 3 – 7 syllables
line 4 – 6 syllables
line 5 – 5 syllables
line 6 – 4 syllables
line 7 – 3 syllables
line 8 – 2 syllables
line 9 – 1 syllable
School
I wish we didn't have to stay here.
The only good part is lunchtime,
eating and playing handball
instead of doing maths.
I don't like history
or geography.
I can't wait
for the
bell.

Not sure who wrote this but as this is for teaching I
Hope that it is forgiven, have fun,
Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

Turco's book 'forms of Poetry' besides the Dictionary of Poetry that you recommended earlier for the workshop.
