Is "To a Skylark" a good first example for a cinquain? "now" doesn't rhyme with "flow" and "know" according to the rhyme scheme presented. Was it pronounced differently in the 1800s? Can the rhyme scheme vary? Dze27 20:32 Feb 15, 2003 (UTC)

"Now" and "know" make an imperfect rhyme and a sight rhyme (see rhyme) - things are sometimes classed as rhymes even though they don't match perfectly. In any case, a cinquain can take any rhyme scheme. That said, if you think an example with all perfect rhymes would be better, then by all means replace it (though it should be a well known example for preference).

The link to the "Lanterne" poetry style leads to page on pasta (oops!). Either the link needs to be removed or a new page needs to be created.--Drekadair 15:40, 24 August 2007 (UTC) this is another cinquian in my class that we are doing we make up ouur own the topic is snow the adjective is bright and fun my verbs end in ing are whiting,falling,glistening my short phrase is fun to play in my synonym wheather —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:21, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

I am removing the following nonsense vandalism:

roar!!! the dangerous beast howls in pain waiting for food

which seems to have gone unnoticed for some time, and replacing it with "Triad" as identified by [1] and previous versions of this page. -- (talk) 10:28, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
