Day 28 ~ Cinquain Pattern 3 for #NationalPoetryMonth and "30 poems in 30 days"

OK, let’s revisit the Cinquain Poem – it always has FIVE LINES, but sometimes you count the syllables per line and sometimes you count the words per line, but this time, the version I call “Pattern 3,” you fill each line in ACCORDING TO THE DIRECTIONS BELOW!! J

This Cinquain Poem has a certain number of words for lines 1, 2, 3, and 5 but line 4 is any phrase (just a short sentence) you want to use so it sort of “pull it all together”

Here is the PATTERN:   

Line1: A noun
Line 2: Two adjectives
Line 3: Three -ing words
Line 4: A phrase
Line 5: Another word for the noun

Here are two examples of mine:

Graceful, lyrical
Leaping, twirling, spinning
My beautiful granddaughter

Sweet, precious
Laughing, babbling, crying
If only they stayed little
