Christmas Rounds – Jane’s Circular Poem – The Twenty-Eight – December 17, 2015

spinning tree

Following their ancient rounds
Sounds of joy floats through the town
Down the alleys ‘cross the mall
All the children dream of this:
Kris Kringle’s bright reindeer sleigh
Away on Christmas evening
Following their ancient rounds …

In children’s dreams:
Creams and candy
Dandy toys too
Blue berry pies
Skies with snow-flakes
Skates on lakes – spin
In children’s dreams.

This morning I had a really stimulating meet with The Secret Keeper about her last week’s poetry prompt (Weekly Writing Prompt – please click to see the interesting prompts she puts up), intrigued that she’d written with the combination of the circular poem and the twenty-eight for her 18 December post (spoilers!)  I thought I’d like to try it – but forgot that the twenty eight is a seven syllable poem in  only four lines, however, thank heaven’s there’s a variation  .. so I wrote the variation as a “twenty-eight circular poem” (seven lines with four syllables each).

I’ll link this to B&P’s Shadorma & Beyond – Jane’s Circular Poem … (also The Twenty-Eight)
