IN-FORM POETS WEDNESDAY – QUINZAINE

The English word quinzaine comes from the French word qunize, meaning fifteen. A quinzaine is an unrhymed verse of fifteen syllables.

These syllables are usually distributed among three lines:  seven syllables in the first line, five in the second line, and three in the third line (7/5/3). The first line makes a statement. The next two lines ask a question relating to that statement.

MARIE ELENA’S QUINZAINE

All’s all and that’s all all is.
Are y’all still with me?
Anyone?

WALT’S QUINZAINE:

Love speaks in hushed tones.
Hear its whisper?
Will it seduce your heart?
