Writing Advice December 24, 2017

When attempting haikus, it’s good to get John Blackburn’s verses and Karl Suessdorf’s tune to “Moonlight in Vermont” stuck in your head.

Pennies in a stream
Falling leaves, a sycamore
Moonlight in Vermont

Icy finger waves
Ski trails on a mountain side
Snowlight in Vermont

[Telegraph cables, they sing down the highway
And travel each bend in the road
People who meet in this romantic setting
Are so hypnotized by the lovely]

Evening summer breeze
Warbling of a meadowlark
Moonlight in Vermont

[You and I and moonlight in Vermont]

Ha! Who woulda thunk it? (A New Englander, that’s who!)

I once wrote a poem to another song and asked my daughter Jill if she could guess the song. Although the words of my poem were unrelated to the song lyrics, she guessed it immediately. She was so musical, but maybe others could guess it too. I never asked.

Well, now you HAVE to write about that!

That’s very nice.
Haiku in my head right now.
Thank you for your help.
