  • Notes

    • Couldn't figure out the unusual word Leo used? It was the poetic term "cinquain", which is a stanza that contains five lines, as compared to the more familiar "quatrain" which contains four. The Japanese-influenced cinquain has 22 syllables, 5 unrhymed lines of 2, 4, 6, 8, 2 syllables, respectively. Another form of cinquain contains 5 rhymed lines of various syllables with a rhyme scheme of ababb.
