Christmas is the time of year.
When adults start drinking beer.
It is also a time to catch the eye.
Maybe the wishes have been to fly?
Maybe your parents have been saying oh why did I buy this oh why?
Children crazy, ball-balls smashed.
Mum in pieces , oh no she's crashed!
Children in darkness and despair.
Just wishing to get out in the snowy air.
A nice way of closing 2018 - it is not easy to rhyme but you have given this a really good go. Well done.
A perfect gift
Christmas is a wondrous thing: presents given, trees decorated and smiles appear. If you wander my street it’s not so delightful, a few old rags wrapped up in newspaper if you’re lucky. Our street isn’t like theirs, ours is poor, only rags for shelter for no one has much money. I sometimes imagine; great sparkling lights, a room full of presents, oh that would be nice.
Its Christmas, I’ve put up our branch (I don’t expect anything under it). As I walked towards the ‘tree’, I find my family gaping at a little box covered in gorgeous wrapping paper. Reading the tag, my heart leapt with joy. I pulled the string and there within was a note that someone had got us a house.
Well done Amelia. I have made a couple of really minor adjustments in the 100WC tab - can you spot them? Great effort.
Many dream of lots of different presents.Some enjoy a nice stroll on Christmas morning and others a object,others have more unusual wishes like sight or the ability to hear or walk.Sally was one of those people who enjoyed waking up on Christmas morning and watching spinning ball balls glistening on the tree,but this Christmas was going to be totally different.A spotty red present with a blue ribbon was under the tree and in Sally’s eyes dying to be opened.Unwrapping the present with great care she accidentally opened a porthole to hell.Jelousy, Anger, Self doubt, Greed and all bad things flew out.What had Sally done.
An interesting interpretation Aoife. I have made a couple of tweaks in the final version as I think some bits are slightly lost. Hope that's ok! Well done.
In a berries seed.
Where baubles were lands to strange, tiny creatures. Mandy's. Cat like animals with furry ears and black button noses. The once peaceful species of Christmas cheer surrounded by cruel conflict inflicted upon them by the Snow Mandies. Each December the Baub Mandy's fight back in terrifying ways. from Christmas cracker cannons to gingerbread soldiers who attack there safe haven. But there is one species of Mandy who try and escape this conflict They have no name, no idea they are just prisoners to this world long war. Many of them dream of a free life ; they will never escape.
A good piece Gracie. I have made a couple of subtle adjustments on the 100WC tab, to make it slightly more clear for someone new reading this. Well done.
As Christmas baubles hung on the tree
The festive lights went on as far as I could see,
As mum and dad drunk some tea
Ten presents were lay there for me!
And now I have to go and eat lunch
But I told them I’ve already had my morning brunch,
Lots of turkey was spread out on my plate
But now I thought it was getting just a little too late.
So I walked upstairs and got into bed
And then laid down my tired head.
It had been a wonderful Christmas day
And there’s nothing else left to say!
Very well written Sam. I enjoyed reading it, a lot! The rhyming scheme changes after the first verse which is an interesting choice, but I think it still works well.
Christmas is all about spreading cheer
Remember it only comes once a year
So think about giving and not what you’ve got
It is still Christmas, presents or not
Christmas is a day that everyone can have fun
After a long hard year, after the work is done
So next time you’re sat there on Christmas Day
Think it’s not all about presents or Santa on his sleigh
Take this poems meaning on board but remember
Make sure to have lots of fun this December
Nicely written Esme. You have rhymed nicely here and the poem did bring a smile to my face! Well done.
Read a girls called Anya's its brilliantly funny.
Thanks for the recommendation Gracie!
