Elfchen – 5 Liners

… are short poems consisting of 11 words, which have a specific structure:

  1. Line – one word : A thought, thing, color, smell
  2. Line – two words  : What ist the word from line one/purpose/description
  3. Line- three words : Where or how is the word from line one?
  4. Line – four words : What do you think?
  5. Line – one word   : Conclusion

The general idea of that was to introduce school children into poetry…but there are no ends to the How, the structure, end- rhymes…
