Poetry Forms Easily Explained - a work of Bianca with additions by kansaspoet
|Strange how things can go. I was working on a wrist warmer (yes...knitting), in which I had hidden a reversed cinquain. The inventor of the cinquain made me think and I decided to look up her biography using Google.
There I saw that she is also responsible for the invention of the Doublet.
Related to the epigram, the Doublet has twenty syllables, divided over two lines. The title of the poem is integral.
My try: (written after a news fact of the past week)
Anne Frank's Tree
She looked up towards me; I guarded her
years later, people tried to tear me down.
