Play Haiku Jeopardy

April, National Poetry Month in the United States is coming to an end. Let’s give it a good send off and play Haiku Jeopardy. The poems will give clues to their subjects. Your response need not be in question form. In your comments, guess what the verses describe, or make a Haiku riddle of your own (5-7-5 syllables). If you need a hint for the answers, click on the question title.

Haiku Jeopardy

1. Which?
Land of the Pampas
By Río de la Plata
Birthplace of tango.

2. Who?
A brave General
Then President of his land

3. What?
We like to eat fish
we swim better than we walk,
and wear tuxedos.

4. Who?
First Lady of Rock
Canciones de mi padre
When will I be loved?

Tonight, I’ll be presenting these mysteries at our child’s school Poetry Night, as the MC. I’m looking forward to this poetry game. The riddles above are about the Americas, you can choose to write one for your neck of the woods. ¡Olé! ; ) Rebecca
