Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: song sparrows, bird calls, or something from Monday's nature quote. Feel free to mine the comments, too.

Post your haiku or limericks in the comments, below. Remember the pattern of a haiku is:

First, 5 syllables,
the second line has seven.
And 5 at the end.

A limerick is a wee bit more complicated. Here's one description.

Post your haiku or limerick in the comments, below.

    How much one can learn
    Just by paying attention
    In one's own backyard!

  2. To the song sparrow:
    My heart swells when your throat calls
    Across the daylight

  3. Song in the chorus
    I hear you on spring mornings
    announcing the dawn.

  5. I hear the birds call,
    their song so cheerful, I smile.
    Nature's gift package.
