Cinquains are poems you can write by yourself using a pattern. The pattern for a cinquain includes five lines:
Line 1--one word--title
Line 2--two words--describe the title
Line 3--three words--describe an action
Line 4--four words--describe a feeling
Line 5--one word--a word that means the same as the title

Cinquains are often called diamond poems because the poem you write is shaped like a diamond.
