  1. Little Golden Books
    Under Christmas trees
    Wrapped in shiny paper
    I knew it was just for me

    Nothing makes me happy
    Like books under the tree
    The gift of words of prose
    Are ones which bring such glee

  2. Instructional Haiku:

    Peace, Joy and Love are
    not just for the holidays.
    Practice them all year long.

  3. Words on a Tree
    words that sparkle, shine
    gleaming in the dark
    lit by candles
    tiny white lights

    words that endorse
    encourage a sad face
    by a hug
    pats on the back

    words from sheet music
    making you sing
    notes shooting out
    imbedded under skin

    words printed, lasting
    read over and over
    in wee books
    in letters kept forever.
