The air was crisp
The sky was damp
My brother hissed
Under the lamp
 
The sky was damp
My sister screamed
Under the lamp
Its powerful beams
 
My sister screamed
The monster’s eyes
Its powerful beams
Her soul it fries
 
The monster’s eyes
The horror grows
Her soul it fries
Its hot breath blows
 
The horror grows
More monsters lurk
Its hot breath blows
My brother smirks
 
More monsters lurk
My brother hissed
My brother smirks
The air was crisp

This was a demo pantoum written with my class today when they were introduced to the form. It took an unexpected turn! 🙂

If you scroll to the bottom, WordPress will probably link to a couple of other pantoums written with my classes in previous years. They are entertaining.
