The first line = 2 syllables (same as line 9)
The second line = 4 syllables
The third line = 6 syllables
The fourth line = 8 syllables

As it is nearly Valentines Day, I wrote a Rictameter about Love. I hope you enjoy it, you should try to create your own.

Rictameter Poem Example 

Valentines Day

To love
Some say it’s hard
But I think otherwise
Love is the easiest feeling
No need to hide it, express it with pride
Its a kiss, a hug or a smile
It’s hidden in our eyes
Nothing compares
To love

    Thanks for the tip. Beautiful poem. I’m going to try this out sometime. It seems very interesting and perhaps not as hard as I first thought it’d be 🙂
