Markings, Part 16

Dag. The man liked him some haikus. They were originally written in Swedish, but the translator tried to stay true to having 17 syllables.

76. Denied the Sought-After,
He longed to deserve
To be the Sought-After (180)

77. A box on the ear taught the boy
That Father's name
Was odious to them. (180)

78. On Christmas Eve, Good Friday
Was foretold them
In a trumpet fanfare. (186)

79. When he saw them all flee,
The skunk decided
He was the King of Beasts. (189)

80. Beauty, Goodness,
In the wonder's here and now
Became suddenly real. (190)
