Day 18 ~ A Simple Little Form for a Holiday Poem

Okay, today let's write a “Holiday Poem” ~ NEXT Sunday is Easter so how about taking time now to come up with a “Holiday Poem” about Easter. This form can be used for ANY holiday.

Here ya’ go:

Line 1: Name of holiday
Line 2: Something you see on this holiday
Line 3: Something you smell on this holiday
Line 4: Something you hear on this holiday
Line 5: Something you taste on this holiday
Line 6: Something you touch on this holiday
Line 7: Name of holiday

You can use this INSTANT site to set up your poem: Instant Holiday Poem Site

Here's what I came up with ~ one kind of a typical Easter poem and the second one is more what Easter is REALLY about. Enjoy:

Awakening of a new dawn
Sweet the smell of lilies pure, innocent, full of hope, virtue and new life.
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing “He Is Risen”
Eternal salvation for all
Radiant loving spirits of those around me

Cute dresses on girls and suits on boys, looking ever so dapper
The smells of Roast Leg of Lamb cooking and fresh flowers so lovely
Children laughing while Easter Egg hunting and tuneful choirs singing songs of redemption
Hard boiled eggs tasting so tangy and fresh when made into egg salad
Our spirits are touched with blessings unmeasured and love for our Savior fills our hearts
