Christmas (Acrostic)


C is for Christ, a God-given gift to mankind
H is for hope of the world that is dark and cold
R is for reason of this great celebration
I is for ideals to make this world safer to live in
S is for the song of the angels, asking us not to fear
T is for time, sharing gifts with strangers and loved ones
M is merriment on the birth of Jesus
A is acceptance of the gift in our hearts
S is salvation to all who receive him.

    Dear Lynn, thank you so much for your very generous response to my poem. Sometimes I do acrostic because it gives a great focus on the meaning or significance of the word. Passion in the heart can also be beautifully expressed through blank or free verse. I do it often and I think so long the main thought is being expressed to the fullest so this kind of poetry is also great. Only lately, I am experimenting haikus and I find it very simple and yet difficult too and again one is limited by its poem*s structure or form. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
