Christmas Wordle 2013

Under the red winter sky,
children gather and clamour for answers.
Will it snow? Will it lay?
An old moon declines to say,
his night light dwindling.

Early next morning, the tree
adorned with gewgaws,
falals and fairy dust, swinging free,
bright packages,
piled higgledy piggledy underneath,
draws a gathering of gleeful children
eyes wide in wonder,
clamouring for answers. Is that for me?


Written, a little late, for We Write Poems and the last verse chopped off  two days even later!  Although it completed all the words, it was a pompous and unnecessary ending to the original poem.

    Our presents were indeed ‘piled higgledy piggledy underneath’ our tree. And what a sight it was on Christmas morning (even for me who had sat up late the night before making the piles).


  2. Enjoyed this so much. Happy and HEALTHY 2014, Viv.

    What a fun poem with lots of brilliant imagery. Great work. It’s never too late for Christmas at our house.
