Cinquain City

Posted on March 17, 2011


Today we learned about the cinquain, a short poem composed of five lines. Since we’ve just finished reading Avi’s wonderful novel Seer of Shadows, we decided to compose our first poem in honor of this amazing book. Here’s the poem we wrote as a class:

Seer of Shadows

Dark Scary

Killing Burning Destroying

The Shadows Will Return



I think they did an excellent job. If you’d like to write your own cinquains, here’s the site we used:
