My 3 line LUNE poems

LUNES are little 3 line poems like haikus only easier for children to write. I wrote these when I took a class on various poetic forms. The rules are simple: first line 3 words, second line 5 words, third line 3 words.

Bobby Sherman sings
Lifts my spirit high above
A world forlorn

Happy little faces
School bus pulls out groaning
Loaded with children

Substitute teacher laughs
They thought they could trick
A wise woman

Shuttered windows wink
a world of noise without
quiet peace within
