This week, Lichtenstein class have been looking at cinquain poems.
We learnt that cinquain comes from the French word “cinq” which means five. This links with the poem as a cinquain poem always contains five lines.
We created a cinquain poem about the Angel of Poplar as a class:
Crying, praying, defending
A lonely, heartbreaking figure
We then had a go at writing our own cinquain about the Clock Tower. Here are two examples:
Persecuting, representing, observing
Pondering and looking through
Timing, ticking, towering
A lofty building standing
