Today marks the first day of National Poetry Month. We haven't read many poetry books with our little guy yet, but I'm hoping to try some Shel Silverstein this month (I always loved his books when I was younger).
I'm not much of a poet. But in honor of the month, I humbly offer these haikus:
wants more books before bedtime.
How can we say no?
He turns the pages;
I lean down to kiss his hair.
Let's read forever.
A haiku is a Japanese style of poem which consists of three lines. The first and third line contain five syllables, and the second line contains seven. There are other elements typically included in a genuine haiku that you can learn all about on Wikipedia's page, but in my just-for-fun haikus, 5/7/5 is the only requirement.
Share your own bibliophilic haiku in the comments...come on, I dare you. :)
