A new poetry form the BELL has been added, which is an elongated version of a Cinquain. It has 9 lines and rigid syllable count of 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 8, 2, 1, respectively. When the <center>...</center> alignment is used the poem resembles a bell shape. (If not you get a half bell!) The last two lines are the 'striker' - the counterpoint that chimes the bell!

Bells have so much symbolism and historical significance that it should be easy to be inspired by this form as a reader or writer. The BELL form lend itself to didactic poems or reflections on past events heralded by bells. It is also ideal for simple music expressions using rhyme, rhythm or free verse.
