More Laura Ingalls Wilder Haiku

I think it’s time for some more Haiku, don’t you?

The corncob was sweet
But there’s a new doll in town.
Button-eyed Charlotte.

“I’ve got to,” Charles said.
Down into the well he went.
Stupid Mr. Scott.

We did not slide, Pa.
But we rolled. Say, Mary, why
Is Pa’s back shaking?

Hair loose, nose bloodied.
Lost washing, breathless ponies.
Cousin Lena ROCKS.

Pa had only this:
A potato on an ax
De Smet’s on its knees.

Snug in the cutter
The man of the place is just
The boy with the reins

    Those are very good! Here’s my meager attempt:

    Crops fail. House burns down.
    Baby dies. But we have Rose.
    Happy first four years?

    Took the train to see
    Almanzo’s boyhood homestead.
    Saw Dean Butler, too. : )
