Frankenstein: Diamante Poems
Killing, revenging, canning,[E1]
Viper, zombie … explorer voyager
Exploring, sailing, nursing,
Blowing, roaring, ebbing,
Thunders, lightning … ice, mist
Freezing, breezing, glaciating[E3] ,

[E3]Not sure these are the correct format. Use dictionary to review. Can you think of other gerunds?
