LANTURNE seems the right form for this week; lantern-shaped verse to feed our longing for light as the days grow ever shorter. A Lanturne has five lines, with a syllable count of 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 1. Line 1 is a noun; line 5 is a synonym or metaphor of the noun. According to some sources, the middle lines should describe the noun; others allow more carefree use of the syllables.
