Introduction to Haikus by Peter

 

Have you heard of a  
Haiku?
Is it a little furry animal? 
Is it a strange food, made from snake-meat? 
Is it a fish, glittering and pointless, in a tank?

 

No, itís a poemÖ..

Just like these little ones here

Japanese and quick

 

Nice little Haiku

Short but perfectly chosen

Sums everything up

 

Wonderful poem

Seventeen syllables long

But each one a gem

 

Why donít you try one ?

Perfectly simple to write

It doesnít take long

 

And here are some of the wonderful haiku written by pupils at St Vincent's...... 


 

Starting with one by the whole of Class 5L:

 

Sharks live in water.

Dangerous, intelligent,

Not always vicious.

 

And some by individual pupils......

 

The British weather 

Is always cold and not hot

In Summer it rains.

Outside is windy

It is also freezing cold

But itís not summer.

Dolphins are agile

Dolphins are intelligent

Dolphins like to swim

And another poem by the whole class:

 

Exciting noisy classrooms displaying work like gardens showing flowers

Good hardworking children listening like sheepdogs with their masters

Dull, dusty staffroom full of talk like a conference of presidents

Wet concrete playground like a farmyard of clucking chickens

Smart miserable teachers drinking coffee like deer by a river

 

At the moment, we are working on versions of the Korean Story of Sun and Moon, which will appear here soon.......
