Rocking Horse Triplets (haiku/tanka string)

cherished they once were~

delightful enjoyment~

rocking back and forth~

~~~~~

children’s laughter heard~

joyfully filling a room~

merrily ridden~

~~~~~

abandoned lonely~

darkened alley now their home~

they no longer rock~

small ones quickly out grew them~

hoping they would be rescued~

~~~~~

joy they still could bring~

to children with very little means~

treasured once again~
