The Structure of a Diamante Poem

     A diamante  poem is made up of 7 lines using a set structure:

Line 1:  Beginning subject

Line 2:  Two describing words about line 1

Line 3:  Three doing words about line 1

Line 4: A  short phrase about line 1, a short phrase about line 7

Line 5:  Three doing words about line 7

Line 6:  Two describing words about line 7

Line 7:  End subject

When a diamante poem is written it takes on the shape of a diamond.

Example of a poem below.
