    "Lazy children wade
    through summer, like ducks in pond;
    This is the last line."

    Wow! I'm very bad at this, but this one is great: 5-7-5, and even Kigo!
    I like it.
    And it is good too in reverse order:

    this is the last line
    through summer like ducks in pond
    lazy children wade

    More mysterious, that way (no punctuation). A little bit of Zen.
