A Dolly Bird Is The Seventh Wonder Of My Heart (Triple Rictameter) - Poem by Harindhar Reddy
Rills with musk-roses fill - a
Feast to the eyes of green globule.
Rubens smirks at your adult shapes - hilltop!
You're apple of my eyes - stars on
The sky, birds in the trees,
Yow, you're my love.
In you, I saw -
Glissando of Rehman's
Pipe and romantic muse of Blake,
Yet, it's the beauty of your love that fills.
It's your swanlike walk, Gilbertian
Talk and zaftig bod made
Me crazy Lee.
Above all is small -
You have legato skin,
A svelte waist, a kind soul, a sweet
Smile, a fond heart, heaven's charm with Nature's
Halo. Holly-hock, a DOLLY
Bird's the seventh wonder
Of my heart, wow.

A rictameter is an interesting, and visually beautiful type of poem. When centered, it looks much like a diamond.
The syllables would look something like this per line: 2,4,6,8,10,8,6,4,2.
There are also 'double rictameters' which is basically one poem, of two rictameters in a row, which again is very visually expressive. This is triple rictameter.
