Old Writing: Part 16::Two Cinquains

This paper has no date but it does have directions for how to write a cinquain:

  1. One word title (names the topic)
  2. Two words describing the title (defines or describes)
  3. Three words describing actions (expresses action)
  4. Four words expressing feelings (expressions of personal attitude)
  5. Another word for the title (synonym for topic)

I wrote two but didn’t finish the first:

Butterflies
Pretty insect
Softly flying landing
Enchanting

Summertime
Lively time
Playing, working, having fun
Wonderful, delightful
Warm

Yeah, I’m pretty much a failure at cinquains.
