The Cinquain

Today’s assignment at d’Verse Poets is to write a cinquain.  This is a five line poem with the syllable count of 2, 4, 6, 8, 2.  It has a title and should convey a moment, image or mood.  We were also asked to pay close attention to line endings.



to sing

in joyful praise

love for Mother Nature

the robin sings her happy songs

of spring

  1. Lovely poem – beautifully to form and I can tell you took care not just over the line endings, but over each word. These really tight forms almost force you to weigh every word so that you get the most poetic effect from each one. You’ve managed to get a lot in; your internal rhymes and end rhyme add to the musicality of this piece, Teresa.

    Thanks for playing along at dVerse 🙂

  2. Seems everyone’s itching for Spring tonight. 🙂 I l really liked this, my only suggestion would be to change one of the “joyful”s to another one but I love the image of it, you’ve captured it well. 🙂
