Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 10 September 2022!
For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a Quinzaine. The topic is up to you!
You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is Quinzaine?
Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…
The English word quinzaine come from the French word qunize, meaning fifteen. A quinzaine is an unrhymed verse of fifteen syllables.
These syllables are distributed among three lines so that there are 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.
I’m a very strong woman
Are you a woman?
Are you strong?
