Your turn

A Cinquain (cinq is the french word for five) is a 5 line poem that uses the following guidelines.

line 1 - one word (noun) a title or name of the subject
line 2 - two words (adjectives) describing the title
line 3 - three words (verbs) describing an action related to the title (-ing)
line 4 - four words describing a feeling about the title
line 5 - one word referring back to the title of the poem

Here's an example:

white blossoms
blowing, drifting, freezing
oooh, my aching back
Have fun!
