Joy – Lantern poems

Lantern poems are very short poem and easy to write! It only has five lines and this is how many syllables are in each:
The first line has got 1 syllable
The second line has got 2 syllables
The third line has got 3 syllables
The forth line has got 4 syllables
And the 5th line has got 1 syllable ( This line usually is strongly related to the first line )
They must be center aligned to look like the shape of a Japanese lantern ( this is why they are called lantern poems )

Joy
Grows strong
If we have
Desire to
Love
