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
