A Horde of Haiku

A Horde of Haiku A horde of Haiku Is what will be found when you Read all of mine through. What if embittered And all your patience is lost It could be costly. Leaves are on branches Cattle exist on ranches Are there some to spare? (Can questions be part of haiku?) Books do have pages And price may be outrageous So check out instead. (Library credo.) How long will you wait? For me to originate What I contemplate. So if it was you Who was first to contemplate How long should I wait? For Frost to appear His horse thinks that it is ***** No farmhouse is near. Think it was last year Catastrophe I did fear And now it is here. Forgot to turn in My book I checked out again Patience wearing thin. A book here and there All over and everywhere Looks like library. A Horde of Haiku Hiding in a Library. James Thomas Horn, Retired Veteran
