Diamante poetry

♥   ♥   ♥

Diamante poem: a seven-line, diamond-shape poem based on two contrasting ideas.

➡ Line 1 and Line 7 are one word that names the two opposites/synonyms (noun).
➡ Line 2 and Line 6 are two adjectives describing the nouns on the top and bottom line.
➡ Line 3 and Line 5 are three -ing or -ed words that describe the nouns.
➡ Line 4, the line in the middle, is the turning point – must have a smooth transition. 2 words relate to line 1 and other 2 words relate to line 7.
