Twin Cinquains - Birds/Animals - Poem by Patricia Grantham

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

    Man
    Not as wise as the owl
    more crow than sparrow
    Tendency to play oppossum
