Ethan’s “Books” Haiku

My 8 year old recently brought home a few haikus he wrote at school. (A haiku is a type of Japanese poetry where you have 3 lines, with 5, 7, and 5 “on” (like a syllable); http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haiku)

My favorite is “Books”:

Books

Books. Books. Their knowledge.

Information flows through me.

The knowledge of books.

Others:

River

Its current flows fast.

The river rushes swiftly.

Its cool, sweet water.

Humans

I am one of them.

Some of them work all day long

You are one of them.

Air

It flies everywhere

It gives humans oxygen

We need it to live
