    Change this to senryu theme. and put it straight to Susan's contest!!! she would be crazy if she did not like it. (well, I guess you would have to remove the word red in line one and "my" in last line to keep the syllable count) but with that, It would be a sure winner I would think.

    Yes, he criticized my previous poem saying that I have destroyed the beauty of the nature. "Hush! my baby cannot sleep" by using those words I've tried to stop the beautiful sound of the cuckoo's cry. he asked me to write it this way instead appreciating the cuckoo's whistle. thank you for your commenting.
