Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee haiku


the Queen's diamond jubilee
a bouquet of sunflowers -
the royal faces

the Queen's Diamond Jubilee
new royal faces brighter
than the morning sun

the Queen's Diamond Jubilee
some faces we can only
imagine to be there

the Queen's Diamond Jubilee
some faces we can only
wish them to be there

the Queen's Diamond Jubilee
each gait lighter than
the first - 60 years ago

the Queen's Diamond Jubilee
all the years that make
this day a glory

the Queen's Diamond Jubilee
the day shines like
quality vantage wine

the Queen's Diamond Jubilee
every gait and smile
a sparkling triumph

the Queen's Diamond Jubilee
60 years unfold in yellow,
green and ocean blue

the Queen's Diamond Jubilee
the thunderstorm clears
with a chorus of laughter

the Queen's Diamond Jubilee
in each and every smile
flashes of triumph

the Queen's Diamond Jubilee
between each sparkle
a glistening tear of joy

the Queen's Diamond Jubilee
three more years to
the longest serving monarch

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
