Poetic Lanterne

Posted elsewhere on March 18, 2011 by emanita01

A lanterne is a five line quintain verse shaped like a Japanese lantern with a syllabic pattern of one, two, three, four, one. Each line able to stand on its own, and the poem may or may not have a title which sometimes forms an integral part as a ‘sixth line’.
