My poem this week is a didactic cinquain, one of many different types of cinquains. This form has eleven words, five lines, and is non-rhyming. The pattern of numbers of words for each line is 1, 2, 3, 4, 1. The content for each line is as follows: 1-noun; 2-two adjectives that describe line one; 3-includes an action; 4-longer description; 5-noun that relates to line one. Thanks for the reminder, JanBeek! I’ll have to add it to my list of poetry types.
Wings catapult aloft
Protects treasure with fire
