Cinquain poems are easy to write and a lot of fun too. The simplicity comes from following a set pattern of words and phrases. The resulting poem—five lines in a special shape—is rich with colorful, concrete vocabulary. Here are two examples:
Glowing, glittering, sparkling
Twinkles on our tree
. . . . .
Watching, waiting, listening
Hurrying to the manger
