(I make no apologies for this slushy Christmas whimsy- I like Christmas , or rather my rose tinted view of it !)



Tinsel twisted,

twinkled tree.

Tresses glintling,

glowing lights.

Little smiles,

small hands.

Halls a bounty

Boundless love.

Loading stockings,

stuffing turkeys.

Tuneful carols,

candy kisses.

Kind hearts,

helping strangers.

Still nights,

nipping frost.

Fruity feasts,

festive fare.

Family mirth,

mindful wishes.

Window shopping,

sharing pavements.

Packing presents,

private secrets.

Seasons greetings,

gracing doorways.

Downy snowfalls,

sneezing tremors.

Treasured moments,

morning bells-

Believe in Christmas-

Cherish well.

What fun!
Some wonderful sentiments expressed, and it took me a moment as well to figure it out ; )

Have to own up to not having spotted the structure either, which is soooo clever. And (a bonus) it means Christmas can't be spelt Xmas.

Do you know? Now that you've pointed me in the right direction on this, it almost sings like a carol. I wanted to say at the end "and a partridge in a pear tree" really clever. Graham x

Had another looka at this one and really like the structure. It made an impact without feeling 'forced' maybe it could be taken further or condensed into a 3 liner. I may have a go. The only weak link in this chain (and it does seem like a chain to me) is the line sounded bells. though I am stuck for something better. Is this a well known format? not seen it before Win x

Have a lovely Christmas Sian. It is a wonderful time to be unrestrainedly sentimental and I praise you for it. Graham

Well Im not ashamed to admit I love Christmas too. It may be uncool, and it may be too commercialized, and it may be religious { oh anathema!!} but your poem says it all for me!

A definite feel good poem - makes you remember all that is good about Christmas, which is sometimes hard to remember in the build up.

Nice one this Sian. It reads like a Christmas wish list.
It creeps up (or down in this case) on us once again. Happy festivities to you.

Quite right - don't apologise. A real "It's a Wonderful Life" poem. Bedford Falls on Christmas Eve. Excellent. Happy Christmas!
