Sketch 6: The Hatchet

For readers in the U.S., the poem should be self-explanatory.  For others are who aren’t familiar with the story, have a look here.

Do they still have portraits of George Washington in elementary school classrooms?  They did when I was young.

The Hatchet

The Hatchet
I cannot tell a lie:
the tree’s blossoms
never lost their scent;
the cherries
grew
and then
were picked.
