Happy Birthday Charles (Dickens)

Charles Dickens was born 200 years ago this week. Here are some Haikus to honour his memory.

Dickens created
Great stories and characters
Remembered and loved

Young Oliver Twist
Bill Sykes, the Artful Dodger
Fagin and Nancy

Ambitious young Pip
And poor, mad Miss Haversham,
Magwitch the convict

Lawyers and teachers
Court rooms, school rooms, scenes of crime
And the guillotine

The debtors’ prison
Old Curiosity Shop
London’s River Thames

Its two hundred years
Since the great Dickens was born
We still love his tales
