 - Today we are writing Nonet form poems.  According to our teacher, Marian,  a Nonetheless should have nine lines, the first with nine sylabels, next eight, then seven, and so on. We could follow that starting with a one syllable line and work our way up to nine again. 
 - The Old Possum was a name Eliot assumed when he corresponded with his children and he adopted it again for this book.

I like how you managed the form here. There are always more and more poets to study and gain from.
