Twin Cinquains - Birds/Animals


BIRDS
Wise as an owl
Humble as the dove
Graceful as an eagle
Swift like the sparrow

ANIMALS
Bold as a lion
Fast like the cougar
Ferocious as a bear
Cunning as the hyena

    Good read.....But it is not clear to me what you wished to convey to the reader through the cinquains. Perhaps I missed the point.... (Report) Reply

    So, within the compact frame of Cinquains, you have summarized all cardinal and common traits of birds and animals alike... Enjoyed! ! (Report) Reply
