A nonet has nine lines. The first line has nine syllables, the second line eight syllables, the third line seven syllables, etc… until line nine finishes with one syllable. It can be on any subject and rhyming is optional.
Magic hung in the air that dark night,
To spill out over the night sky.
Rummaging in crevasses,
Wait for someone to die.
To raise them up again.
That they might not lie
In cold slumber.
