« Song page for Haiku

I have been trying
To write a haiku for you
Some things I just can't do

Maybe you're beyond
Ancient Asian poetry
Or maybe it's just me

I have been trying
To get this haiku just right all night
For you; alright I'm through

Maybe this poem
Was lost in the sauce we spilled
That never got refilled

I've never thought much
Of formulaic verse anyway
And rhymes are not my forte

I have been trying
To get this haiku just right all night
For you; alright I'm through

I'm trying not to try too hard
But you're hard to write down right
So I pen these tried attempts
At haikus for you tonight

Lah dah dee diddum
Lah dah dah dum doo ditto
Dum doo lah dee doh

There, that's sufficient
I wrote a haiku for you
Well I tried at least, and that's not so bad
I'm working here; can that be said for you?

I'm trying not to try too hard
But you're hard to write down right
So I pen these tried attempts
At haikus for you tonight

Words don't work like Webster says
They trip me up all night
I'm just trying to write for you
But you're hard to write down right
