Haiku U: Little Women

by John MacBeath Watkins

While I've been contemplating starting a Doggerel Night at Twice Sold Tales, I've been thinking of some of my favorite light verse. Very little of it has been written in Haiku, but I recommend to you a book by David Bader, Haiku U: 100 great books in Haiku.

Here's his take on Little Women:

Louisa May Alcott, Little Women
Snow-drops hang like tears.
Shy, sweet, saintly Beth has died.
One down, three to go.
