Flittering on the ground
Forever searchin’, head bobbin’
I’m sure you see them in the yard bobbing their heads into the grass in search of worms. It’s a pretty common sight.
This poem is a Cinquain.
A Cinquain is a five line poem. The format, inspired by Adelaide Crapsey in 1915, has a fixed syllable count of: 2,4,6,8,2. Rhyming is optional.
I did a bit of rhyme on this one.
I counted the word -orange- correctly this time as 2 syllables.
