Haiku riddles with Motoko

4th and 5th graders at the Kenneth A. Brett School wrote haiku riddles with Motoko, and then created stories that incorporated the riddle. A haiku riddle is a haiku—a Japanese form of poetry that comprises three lines of five, seven, and five syllables—that poses a question, answerable with a name or phrase. In honor of Tamworth's 250th, students created haiku riddles with Tamworth-based answers. Motoko wrote one for us, too:

 
Serving his country
Perished in the German sky
A school bears his name
— Motoko
 

Can you guess the answer?

Motoko's residency was supported by generous business sponsor The Other Store and was funded in part by the New England States Touring Program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program and the six New England state arts agencies, with support from the K. A. Brett School, the Tamworth PTA, and from media sponsors The Conway Daily Sun, 93.5 WMWV, and Magic104FM.
