Written in response to a couple friends of mine who have said for almost a year that they’ve thought about trying to write cinquain, but they won’t even make a start. They find it fascinating, but seem to be afraid of it. They have this false idea that because they need to count syllables, they will have trouble. If they’d just try, they’d be surprised and delighted with the results — and hooked on it– like I am. 🙂
Tell me again
Why you don’t try cinquain.
You think it’s difficult to write?
You are afraid
That you can’t get it right.
Syllable count seems difficult.
And you will find
That it’s much easier
Than you have even dared to think.
