A Year Of Preschool--Haiku style

Haiku is a short Japanese poem used to evoke images.  It follows a strict form of three lines, with a 5-7-5 syllable structure and they quite often create images of nature, emphasize simplicity, intensity and directness of expression. There is a program I found that allows you to enter random words and then it generates a haiku for you. I thought "well, that's easy."  I did that, it came up with something really strange, so I decided to give it a try on my own. Here goes:  Autumn leaves fall down, children run, jump, squeal, fall, hide Teacher smiles broadly Winter winds blow hard, Inside children run, squeal, climb Teacher smiles faintly Spring flowers bud, bloom, grow Children laugh, mud puddles call Teacher hangs on tight Summer break arrives Children sing, dance, draw, grow, leave Teacher quietly cries That's all for now.
