Diamante is a seven-line poem arranged in the shape of a diamond. The purpose is to go from the subject, at the top of the diamond, to another totally different (and sometimes opposite) subject at the bottom.

The diamond shape can be achieved by having a single word in the first and last lines, while the fourth line is the longest. This type of poem typically lacks rhyming words.

  1. New word ‘dolor’ – ah yes I see related to Dolores or Delores… I am reminded of the charactor on a sit-com, that Delores/Dolores fit the meaning… I wonder if that was planned?

    Grief can weigh heavy on a sad heart.

    1. I learn many new words due to writing poetry. Dolor seemed to be a fitting word for the poem. Seems there were several sitcoms with Delores and what you say makes sense.

      Your last statement rings true.
