Lucky Dip – Saturday Mix, 14 August 2021

Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 14 August 2021!

For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a Nonet. The topic is up to you!

You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is a Nonet?

Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…


A nonet has nine lines. The first line has nine syllables, the second line eight syllables, the third line seven syllables, etc… until line nine finishes with one syllable. It can be on any subject and rhyming is optional. 

line 1 – 9 syllables
line 2 – 8 syllables
line 3 – 7 syllables
line 4 – 6 syllables
line 5 – 5 syllables
line 6 – 4 syllables
line 7 – 3 syllables
line 8 – 2 syllables
line 9 – 1 syllables
