Almost

A little less than, very near not quite

Always within an inch, borderline

Practically somewhere, nearly

Virtually within an inch

Just about pretty much

As good as it gets

Approximate

Relative

Almost

YOU…

 

P. S. An Etheree consists of ten lines of 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 syllables

It can also be reversed and written 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1
