Haiku (7, 11, 16, 18 & 20) - Poem by Richard Wright


Make up you mind, Snail!
You are half inside your house,
And halfway out!


You moths must leave now;
I am turning out the light
And going to sleep.


All right, You Sparrows;
The sun has set and you can now
Stop your chattering!


Sparrow's excrement
Becomes quickly powdery
On sizzling pavements.


The dog's violent sneeze
Fails to rouse a single fly
On his mangy back.
