Cinquain Poetry

A cinquain is a short poem about an object, a person, or an idea. A cinquain has a title and five lines. The number of words change for each line.

Here are some examples from Mrs D's Poets:


Remembrance


Poppy

Red blossom
Growing, remembering, pollinating
Symbol of fallen men
Opium

Quinn



Dust Makers


Cheetahs

Swift, unbeatable
Stretching, racing, striding
Fastest animal on earth
Sprinters

Thomas K




Prima Ballerina

Dancer
Elegant, poised,
Practice, practice, enhance
Papillon in the sky
Ballet

Hayley



Opacity


Smog

Easily advancing
Spiralling, creeping, wafting
Polluting, choking innocent air
Smoke

Thomas B
