For you, my friend, this Christmas time.
(A Shakespearean sonnet in Acrostic)
Melodious carols playing in the air.
Exciting lights that make the world so bright
Rekindling hope for those in need of care
Rejoice! It’s Christmas! Show your heart’s delight.
Yes, yuletide’s here, let’s raise our voices high.
Christ’s birth proclaimed, ye, people of goodwill.
Hear ye, oh people, sadness you’d get by.
Rejoice! It’s Christmas! New hope to unveil!
In times like this some need a little aid.
Show them some love, portray the love of God.
The joy you’d feel so dear you won’t dare trade.
Must do this deed in truth, not just façade!
Ah, Christmas is the time to share and cheer
So share it now and all throughout the year.
(c) Edmund Melig Industan, 2008
Have a blessed one.
NOTE: 1) This sonnet in acrostic is included in my upcoming book, THE EXPERIMENTAL DASANG (Hey Poem) and 45 OTHER POETRY FORMS.
2) This Christmas, I am wishing that you, my friend, will get a copy of my gift book, PRAISING ALL SEASONS LONG: Haiku Verses, which will be in the market in early January. I just finished proofreading the final galley. "Praising..." is published by Comfort Publishing. Please take a look at its front cover. Thanks to you, my friend.
