Verse the Day Away

Springtime is a great time of year to get inspired by the beauty of nature. I like to write haiku about all the wonderful changes happening outdoors. Haiku is a traditional Japanese form of poetry. Haikus usually have three lines with five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line, and five syllables in the last line. If a haiku isn't really your style, try searching for another form of poetry that suits you. Visit these sites to learn about other forms and read poetry written by other kids just like you!
