rooster crows to raise the sun
sad to say farewell
Today's haiku is an aubade. A morning poem. Can you write your own poem to praise the morning?
Another special occasion poem is the epithalamium, a poem written on the occasion of someone's wedding. Do you have a special occasion coming up--Mother's Day, a birthday, last day of school, teacher appreciation day. If you wrote a poem for the person you want to honor, that would be an occasional poem. Try writing an occasional poem for your mom on the occasion of Mother's Day. Have fun.
