Day 9 ~ Let's Write a Cinquain Poem (Pattern 2)

Cinquain Poem ~ there’s more than one style of cinquain poem – so we’ll call this “Pattern Two.”

Cinq is French for FIVE ~ this poem has five lines that follow a specific pattern.

This short five-lined poem doesn’t have an actual title; rather, the FIRST line (one word) becomes the title.

It does not rhyme and in this version you count the number of words per line and each line has specific requirements:

1st line ~ one word – the subject (or title) or your poem
2nd line ~ two words that describe the title/subject
3rd line ~ three words that express action
4th line ~ four words that express a thought or feeling
5th line ~ one word synonym for title (restates your subject using a different word)

Here's my efforts on this style poem:

Service
Helping others
Let’s work together
Bearing one another’s burdens
Love
