Me Po-tree

I've Limricized..' Haiku
Than Bauk, a time or two.
In verse intent, play scenes.

To prose.' not heavy of line.!
My word..! 'to grasp the time'
Its to do.! Today so seems..

In green of mango groves,
Where marmosets flex toes
Crush berry.. Daub bamboo screen,

To paint a vivid show
my wish for you to know.'
In Balassi stanza keen.
