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.

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
