Sample Cinquain Poems for the April Poetry Raffle

OK guys, today's final poetry sampler is the cinquain poem! A cinquain is a poem that has five lines that go like this:

Line 1 is one word that is the title, or subject, of the poem.
Line 2 is two words that describe line 1.
Line 3 is three words that describe or tell the action of line 1.
Line 4 is four words that describe the feeling of line 1.
Line 5 is one word, the same word as line 1.

Joy's Saturday Sample Cinquains:

Loving comfort
Seeks warm sunlight
Indulges itself like a

Saves the world.
Guards the identity of

So white
Falls in winter.
Later becomes gray, slushy

And how could I forget our daily installment of Twilight poetry?

Golden eyes
"It's the flourescence..."
(Shouldn't have said that!)

Gravity shifting
Everything comes undone
Center of the universe

As always, poetry raffle info forms are available at the adult Info desk until next Thursday, April 16th, when we will draw the winners of the $10 bookstore gift cards at our Magnetic Poetry Craft Night, which begins at 7PM in the Constitution Room. You don't have to be present to win (but come on, who doesn't want to make awesome magnetic poetry?!?), so if you can't make it, you can turn your entries in early at the adult Info desk.

(still reading Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta, which just keeps getting better!)
