Typed up from handwritten notes by: Cody

The author writes:

This annotation
Is all about the art form
Known as the haiku.

Haikus have structure,
Like most poems, some strict rules.
Think you can do it?

It is quite simple.
Once you learn how to do it,
You'll be a master.

The basic structure
Of a well-written haiku
You will see below.

Five syllables here.
Second line, seven total.
And five once again.

Exceptions exist.
Ellipses dots can fill in
. . . For syllables.

I now encourage
For those who haven't tried it
To give it a shot.
