Haiku of Mrs. Erlynne

*Another poem from AP Lit/Comp.  A string of haiku to tell the story of Mrs. Erlynne, a main character from Oscar Wilde’s “Lady Windermere’s Fan”.

Haiku of Mrs. Erlynne

A mother who left,
She chose passion over love.
Walked out on her life.

Returns to blackmail.
Returns to society.
Returns to family.

Saves her daughter’s life.
Prevents her from repeating,
Her own past mistakes.

Termed a good woman,
By her unaware daughter.
Leaves with dignity.
