Narnian Cinquains – Writing Contest #60

April is known in some places as Poetry Month. In celebration of this, let’s try writing a Narnian-themed cinquain. To clarify, a cinquain is a poem in five lines. The first line is the theme (noun), one word in two syllables; the second line is two descriptive words (adjectives) in four syllables; the third line is three words that express action, six syllables; the fourth line is four words that express feeling, eight syllables; and the fifth line is one word in two syllables, referencing the title in the first line. The number of syllables doesn’t have to be exact (I cheated a bit in the sample by making the last line three syllables instead of two) but do try to follow the structure as closely as possible. That’s half the fun!

Example:
Jewel Kind, courageous Fights beside Tirian Ever loyal to Narnia Unicorn

You well know I like to be asked! If you didn’t want me to come along you should have just said so instead of “Wouldn’t you prefer to stay at the castle today?” Stop sulking? Why should I be sulking if you didn’t do anything wrong? I’m not talking to you until I get a proper apology for your rude behavior. A very annoyed, Aravis
