Here is what I came up with!
Poet.org shares, (please click the link to learn more about this poetry form).
“The cinquain, also known as a quintain or quintet, is a poem or stanza composed of five lines. Examples of cinquains can be found in many European languages, and the origin of the form dates back to medieval French poetry.”
I guess it has been poetry week on silverthreading.com this week. Won’t you join me? Try out some new poetry forms! I can’t wait to see what you come up with! ❤
