St Patrick’s Day Haikus

St Patrick’s Day Haikus

5th and 6th Class have been learning about the ancient Japanese form of poetry called haiku.

A haiku is a three-lined poem consisting of 17 syllables. We like to clap along to each syllable to make sure we are counting them correctly.

Here are some St Patrick’s Day haikus!


It’s St Patrick’s Day

An Irish bank holiday

There are big parades. (Áine)


Waving the green flag

Walking in the big parade

Shamrocks rule the day. (Lucas)


Green banners fly high

Balloons soaring in the sky

St Patrick’s is here. (Alan)


Let’s put on the green

St Patrick will make a scene

On the seventeenth. (Caitlín)
