Double Etheree is a 2-verse etheree, but the second verse uses an inverted syllable count, 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1.
Triple Etheree is a 3-verse etheree, using a snaking syllable count, 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10.
An etheree can be quadruple, and more, using a snaking syllable count for each new verse.
