Diamante Poem: Honesty

To write a diamante poem, one begins with two words that seem like opposites. These become the theme of the poem. Common adjectives and verbs tie the two opposites together. A diamante poem encourages people to look at opposites in a new way. Here is the formula for a diamante poem:

1. One noun
2. Two adjectives that describe line 1
3. Three verbs that describe line 1
4. Four nouns, two referring to line 1 and two referring to line 7
5. Three verbs that describe line 7
6. Two adjectives that describe line 7
7. One noun that is the opposite of line 1

"Proverbs 12:17 -- Whoever speaks the truth gives honest evidence, but a false witness utters deceit."

Accurate, Genuine
Approve, Authenticate, Legitimatize
Correctness, Infallibility, Deceit, Falsehood
Distorting, Perjuring, Fabricating
Fraudulent, Evasive
