Easter Egg Hunt

Today’s poem is a Quintilla.

“The quintilla is a Spanish poetic form that, as you may have guessed from the name, uses five-line stanzas. Here are the guidelines:

  • Five-line stanzas.
  • Eight syllables per line.
  • An ab rhyme scheme in which at least two lines use the “a” rhyme and at least two lines use the “b” rhyme…
  • But the stanza cannot end with a rhyming couplet.”

(From Writer’s Digest).

This is my draft of a stanza of a Quintilla

Kids ran in every direction
to find plastic eggs on the ground
filled with delightful confection
searching and giggling abound
now each have their own collection
