Cinquain

The poem on the poetry page is a cinquain that I wrote about the assassination of Jean-Paul Marat by Charlotte Corday during the French Revolution.  A cinquain can be a number of things: in this case, it’s a five line stanza, the first line is two syllables, then four, six, eight, and two syllables.
