- Cinquains are five lines long.
- They have 2 syllables in the first line, 4 in the second, 6 in the third, 8 in the fourth line, and just 2 in the last line.
- Cinquains do not need to rhyme, but you can include rhymes if you want to.
We learnt about syllables by clapping our names. Mokonuiarangi and Hineuamairangi have the most syllables (7), Troy only has one!
