Square Stanza

step        across           this         page,        and           I'll
down        and          vertical        yes         you're      write
 this     horizontal        row,           it's           just         you
page,        yes              it's          cubed        O            my
 and        you're            just             O            so         square
  I'll           write             you            my        square    stanza

I first saw this poetic form yesterday. It's called
a Square Stanza. In its true form it will read alike
both horizontally and vertically. Mine has a few
minor variations!

Approach it mathematically, the poetry comes a littles easier then!

awesome, Elaine!!! I like the variations...changing it to "horizontal" when reading it across and "vertical" when reading down...nice twist!
