Haiku can be many things
and newbies can't count!

Polenta, risotto,
so creamy by fire-side of winter chalet
now woeful summer porridge for poor grad student

Re: Got a haiku on your Swiss experience? Post it here!

Clouds over Jungfrau
And that train is far from cheap
Let's skip it we said


The Aletsch Glacier
Will not be there much longer
So rush there in car


How strange, the driver
Of the Klausenpass postbus
Speaks only German


Give me Swiss fast food
You can get it everywhere
Bratwurst and rosti


Switzerland was nice
I plan to go there again
When I earn the cash

That's not a Haiku!

Now that's a Haiku.
