Cinquain poetry in 6th class

Cinquain poetry in 6th class

Sixth class worked on cinquain poetry recently. Here are the rules of a cinquain:

  1. Cinquains are 5 lines long
  2. They have two syllables in the first line, 4 in the second, 6 in the third, 8 in the fourth and just two in the last line. This gives the poem a diamond shape.
  3. Cinquains do not need to rhyme, though they can if you wish
  4. The best cinquains tell a short story.

Here's a great example by Lily (note: a drake, in this case, is similar to a dragon)

The drake,

Scaly and large,

It moves in for the kill,

Burning the castle in its wake,
