on a cold bleak night
maiden rests her new born babe
in a bed of straw

giggling children
resting in straw
old fashioned hayride

as lovers walk home
one last golden straw
pulled from long hair


  1. Oh that last one.. tells such a sweet story.. Love it

  2. How romantic, particularly that last one there.. I can just see a young couple in love, walking down the street under a glowing winter's moon.. They're laughing and their laughter rings out through the street as he pulls another piece of straw from her hair.. Then they kiss.. It's a fairy tale!! So sorry this comment is so long, but I get all giddy with excitement when someone's haiku brings out that vision and I can see it so vividly! Thank you for sharing!

  3. It's been many years since I've enjoyed a hayride. Thanks for the memories!

  4. Lovely and fun! I haven't been on a hayride in a long time either.

  5. Such lovely sesries...that last one made me smile:)

  6. They're all wonderful -- but the last one is such a sweet moment !!!!

  7. Just wanted to thank everyone for their comments that certainly brought warmth to my heart. Christmas play in the morning, and a flurry of sewing for gifts so no time to answer individually. Thanks!
