Mrs. Kathy Davis' fifth-grade class at Sutro Elementary School has been writing haiku as part of their curriculum.

Traditionally, haiku, or Japanese poetry, consists of a pattern of five, seven, five syllables and can be as few as three lines or as many as deemed needed by the author.

In honor of the holidays, the students wrote the following haiku, which appear as written by the children:
