Thought I'd play around with a new form today. So here are a couple quinzaines.

Quinzaine : The name comes from the French word meaning 15, quinze, describing the total number of syllables. There are three lines with 7/5/3 syllables. The first line is a statement, followed by two questions.

The palm leaves move with the wind.
How many are there?
How much wind?

Father has gone to the store.
When will he return?
What's for sale?

Grandma made yummy cookies.
How many for me?
Just one left!?
