Summer-Time Senryu


This is a senryu (similar to a haiku, but a haiku doesn't mention any people while a senryu does) about the Summertime that I wrote.

- - - - - - - - -

I open the blinds
And the sun shines in my face
While I smile with joy

I wander outside
While basking in the glory
of the summer-time

Birds fly above me
Chirping a glorious song
Looking for some food

Where I live, it is the summertime and it is very nice so I decided to write this senryu to give you an idea of how nice it is.

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
