W is for Wolf and Wedge Verse
I am participating in the A to Z Challenge this month, and today's letter is T.

I wrote a Wedge verse also known as a Rhopalic. More about this form here
Rhopalic - Each succeeding unit is longer than the preceding one. Applied to a line, it means that each successive word is a syllable longer that its predecessor. Applied to a stanza, each successive line is longer by either a syllable or a metrical foot.
This didn't make a lot of sense to me, so I have to go looking for a sample of it. Otherwise it looks a lot like and Etheree....
Here's one where each word is one syllable longer:

And then I did this one where each line is a syllable longer. I hope this is right. I like this second one...almost an etheree - just not 10 lines.
Sail with wild wails
His song washing stars
Silver moon shimmers cold
Penetrating night’s presence
Wolf’s howls a turmoil under gray

Oh, wait, I get the first one now...But wait... How about this format? I am naming this one
Wolves howling nocturnal emanations
calling companions reunited
