Haiku Contest 2016

The annual Middlesex Haiku Contest is our way to welcome (or encourage the arrival of) the spring season.  This year, we enjoyed unseasonably warm weather in early March only to experience a snowstorm on the first day of spring!  We look forward to the time when we can sprawl out on the Circle in the warm spring sunshine.  Below are some of our favorite Haiku Contest submissions, which were read in Chapel before students departed for Spring Break:

Breakfast is my salvation
I miss the omelets
