We haiku, do you? @ the Bay View Library

By frang on Apr 3, 2014 4:07 PM

haiku.jpgIn honor of April being National Poetry Month and National Library Week being right around the corner (April 13-19), the staff at the Bay View Library has been inspired to write our own library themed haikus. Haiku poems are a type of Japanese poetry that has 17 syllables arranged in three consecutive lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively.  Try it, it's fun!
