"The difficulty of literature is not to write, but to write what you mean; not to affect your reader, but to affect him precisely as you wish." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

Today we wrote cinquains during school time. Most of us chose to use the syllable-count form (2-4-6-8-2) and T. chose the word-count form (1-2-3-4-1). We tried using this structure:
Line 1 - noun
Line 2 - description of the noun
Line 3 - action
Line 4 - feeling or emotion
Line 5 - sum up, or restate line 1 in a different way

Here are the ones we came up with, plus a couple more poems from A. who was on a roll today!
