Author Notes
I rescued these two brothers from the pound Monday evening. They are stinkers, but I love them both. They are 8 weeks old. My dogs think they are great. My diva, female cat, has come out of hiding but is still hissing at them.
To the best of my knowledge this is a Cinquain poem. Please be gentle.

Cinquain Poem

A cinquain is written using a pattern. "Cinq" [pronounced SINK] is French for the number 5. This type of poem only has five lines. Each line follows a specific pattern.

There are many ways to write this type of poetry. The traditional cinquain, as developed by Adelaide Crapsey, has five lines and a strict structure based on syllable count.





Line 1:

Two syllables



Line 2:

Four syllables



Line 3:

Six syllables



Line 4:

Eight syllables



Line 5:

Two syllables




Example

November Night
Keep thou (two syllables)
Thy tearless watch (four syllables)
All night but when blue-dawn (six syllables)
Breathes on the silver moon, then weep! (eight syllables)
Then weep! (two syllables)

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
