Christmas (A Sestina)

Rating: 5.0
Christmas is here, Jesus to the world brought peace
Everyone is rested as kids spend time with family
Kitchens are ablaze, wives creating good ol’ soul-food
Leslie and Destra, await their turn, under the mistletoe
Love is burning bright, outshining the fireplace
And playing kids fill the house with laughter

Worries are swept away, sadness replaced by laughter
As love flies through the air, enemies make peace
Whilst sweet carols are sung by the fireplace
We thank God for the greatest gift of family

You seem to grasp the essence of Christmas and your prove so in your beautifully penned poem. There is nothing much to say other than 'well done! ' Sorry my reply is rather very VERY late. Please do send me a message for further notice on some new work.

Say hello and Merry Christmas to Moriah, she's the star of this piece I believe. Surely she will have her own fireplace one of these days. This is a family piece of poetry I suppose. Thanks for sharing. Again Merry Christmas to you all...
