A Merry Christmas To All

by Sandra du Plessis

A Merry Christmas day to all
I call for happy cheers;
to end the year, we booked the hall
for friends from far and near;
the wait for Santa Claus withal
good tidings bring
with songs we sing
our newborn King
to Him, we cling;
with bling we deck the Christmas trees.


The Chime Operandi

By Dolly's Poems

I am introducing a new form and I have called it (The Chime Operandi.)

The complex rhyming scheme is below. The poem has 10 lines. Written in iambic pentameter.

This is a lot of fun and not as hard as it first appears. Give it a try!

This form was created by Dolly's Poems of FanStory and I thought I will give it a try.
