I just learned a new poetic form which I love! The syllable counts offer an interesting rhythm. Here is a "ninesquare" about my dog.
Black and white, small dog, big heart to love.
Loyalty, simpleness, respectful.
So loving, true friendship, my buddy.
She runs to me with glee on her face.
Lovingly, unabashed, playfully.
Tail wagging, paws thumping, eyes sparkling.
There for me, me for her, both for us.
Thoroughly, totally, forever.
So furry, acts sweetly, my doggy.
