April is National Poetry Month! Help us celebrate by creating your very own haiku to add to our poetree display in the Children's Department!
A traditional haiku is a three-line poem, usually about nature, with a total of 17 syllables. The first line includes 5 syllables, the second line includes 7 syllables, and the third line includes 5 syllables.
You can play with the subject and form to create your very own version of a haiku, or write any type of poem. Give your creation to the librarian at the Children's Desk during any of the library's open hours, and we'll get it added to the display!
