Another verse challenge: Cinquains for everyone!
1 to 5 of 5
Aug 1st 2006

A cinquain is a poem with a gradually increasing number of syllables in each line until the last line, which returns to two syllables.

  • First Line: 2 syllables One word, giving title
  • Second Line: 4 syllables Two words, describing title
  • Third Line: 6 syllables Three words, expressing action
  • Fourth Line: 8 syllables Four words, expressing a feeling
  • Fifth Line: 2 syllables Another word for the title.

Example: here's mine, for this week's iPod question:

Roy Anderson
Discovered JAM's smooching.
He should evacuate Scranton.

With every new verse form, there are new opportunities to express yourself ;-) Go for it.

Woah, this sounds a little tricky!
I'll give it a try:

Topic: The Office Olympics

Used yogurt lids
Michael's gone, let's play games
I love Flonkerton and PamPong

Edit: Okay, ooops I forgot the # of words part... I was just focusing on the syllables and type of phrase... I'll try again later and do this right.
