Now we signed our will with witnesses.

It’s gratitude for the small things

and especially you Boo,

like how much I love you!

We laugh together,

we cry for her.


Oh dude



Nonet poems are nine-line poems with a specific syllable count for each line. This poetic form appears to be influenced by the music term nonet.

The nonet poetic form is simple. It’s a 9-line poem that has 9 syllables in the first line, 8 syllables in the second line, 7 syllables in the third line, and continues to count down to one syllable in the final (ninth) line.

The word nonet is used for a group of 9 performers or instruments. So I’m assuming this is one of those poetic forms inspired by music. Writers Digest, ROBERT LEE BREWER.
