Disney Haiku - Installment Two

(Haiku: an unrhymed verse form of Japanese origin having three lines containing usually five, seven, and five syllables respectively.)
And now a little indulgence in language manipulation; Haiku, volume 2...

This week I was watching the Disney Channel and a really nice commercial came on the screen. It was a two minute, fifteen second ode to poetry aimed to opening children's eyes to all things iambic!  Perfectly fitting when I have a Haiki post upcoming.  You could even say serendipitous!

Please to enjoy.

A cool mist sprays out-
Mickey’s imagination
On a summer night

The Main Street Parade;
Magnetic musical sounds
and sparkling lights

Disguised in grass skirts
a bear and man-cub dance for
Bare Necessities

Looking for villains
My favorite trading pins
to fill my lanyard

Scat Cat and a rat
Foil Edgar’s evil plan,
to change Madame’s will

And one more written just for this blog.  As sweet as a spoonful of sugar....

Poppins is her name
Very sweet and witty
Rosy cheeks, no warts!
