DAY FIFTEEN!! "Holiday Poem" for "30 Poems in 30 Days" #NationalPoetryMonth

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 OR perhaps you would like to write a poem about Passover. However, this form can be used for ANY holiday. (It has an "Instant Poem Maker" site for that makes for a quick and easy poem)

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 a few years ago - still like them, but I may try out a new one later today. But for now, here ya' go ~ one kind of a typical Easter poem and the second one is more what Easter is REALLY about. Enjoy:

Flowers all around me
Easter choirs singing
Leg of Lamb or ham are yummy!
Soft flower petals

I thought I'd try a poem about Passover instead (even though I'm not Jewish...as a Gospel Doctrine teacher this year, I'm steeped in the traditions of ancient Israel).

Crystal goblets of wine glistening on the table
Mixed aromas of gefilte fish and matzah ball soup
Reading from Exodus in the haggadah
Bitter horseradish dipped in a mixture of of apples,
nuts, cinnamon, and wine
Water poured over hands to cleanse
