Christmas Corner….

Hello Poetry Lovers

Yes, Christmas is around the corner and I have thrown myself fully into Yuletide.

For a start, I have written a triolet on Christmas – the dark side of the season anyway. This can be a stagnant period of tension and many family rows occur over this season. I have tried to capture that. Followed by a Christmas alphabet poem which I had to struggle with.

Anyway, do read on:

Christmas Triolet

Christmas conflicts ring loud and bright 

For numerous relatives and wives 

Anticipating at least one family fight

Christmas conflicts ring loud and bright

Stingy presents from aunts so tight  

Who’ve been resentful all their lives 

Christmas conflicts ring loud and bright

For numerous relatives and wives 

Christmas Alphabet

Angels/Blitzen/Comet/Dasher/Ecclesiastical/

Thanks for looking in, PL’s. I have to say that last one was hard but I know some of you have really bang up versions of the above form, so answers on a postcard please to the usual address……
