Read "Water-Fight" at The Eldritch Dark:

Although I've generally enjoyed Clark Ashton Smith's (CAS) works in haiku, this particular poem strikes me as one of his weaker efforts in that form.  This is mostly because the closing phrase "glad cries" reads awkwardly, and is not well-anticipated either sonically or conceptually by the rest of the poem.
