Cinquain Poems

Cinquain poems came from Adelaide Crapsy in 1911, who developed her own poetic system, which she called cinquain. 

The didactic cinquain is an informal cinquain embraced by children, young adults and older poets for its expressive simplicity. The prescriptions of this type of cinquain refer to word count, not syllables and stresses. Ordinarily, the first line is a one-word title, the subject of the poem; the second line is a pair of adjectives describing that title; the third line is a three word phrase that gives more information about the subject; the fourth line consists of  words describing feelings related to that subject; and the fifth line is a  synonym or other reference for the subject from line one. The theme of our Cinquain Poems is "Christmas".
