Welcome to my series, Incremental Poetry, where each week the featured poem will be one line longer than the one I share the week before. I have no idea how long I’ll keep this up, so we’ll just have to wait and see. Thank you for stopping by.

About the Poem:
This poem takes on a whole new meaning when read out of the context of the title.

verse form created by Emily Romano
There are only 3 words in the poem, hence the title Brevette.
It consists of a subject (noun), verb, and object (noun), in that order.
The verb should show an ongoing action, and should be written with spaces between the letters.
Each word may have any number of syllables, but there should be balance among the words.
There are no other rules.
Note: Alliteration is not necessary. I only did that because I felt so inclined.

    1. Thank you. I wish I had known about this form when my children were younger, or when I was an English teacher, for I believe my children and students would have enjoyed writing these little gems too.


  1. I love learning new poetry forms. I had not heard of the Brevette. And you’re right … without the title, it can take on a whole new meaning.


    It could be called Writing
    or maybe
