- Cinquino is seems to me is a
gimmicky invented verse form that reverses the syllable count of the
Crapsey Cinquain. It was found in a book on poetry for teachers and was
created by a 20th century American educator James Neille Northe.
The Cinquino is:
- a poem in 5 lines.
- syllabic, 2-8-6-4-2 syllables per line.
