LUNE.....American form of Poetry

The lune is an American form of poetry similar to the haiku. One way of writing a lune is to count the syllables: thirteen syllables are arranged in 5-3-5.

Thinking of a lune

to write down
nothing forms in mind

A second variation of the lune is to count the words: three words in the first line; five words in the second line; three words in the third line.

Write a lune

Set it to a tune
sing it aloud
