Just to let you know I am posting Christmas poems daily all this week (and beyond...) on my poetry blog: A Poem A Day.
There'll be some famous Christmas poems, some old ones and some new ones, funny ones and fabulous ones, meaningful odes, comic limericks and magical musings; from poets such as: Carol Ann Duffy, EE Cummings, TS Eliot, Wendy Cope, UA Fanthorpe, John Agard, Mary Oliver, Alice Oswald and WH Auden.
Poetry always comes out and about at Christmastime. As well as the odd reading of a Christmas poem or two, it's in the carols we sing, the cards we write, the films we watch and most importantly, the things we feel. Magic, yep, that's it; that special twinkly atmosphere that enfolds us. That's poetry's raison d'etre: to capture all those indescribable lovely feelings.
So pop on over for the Christmas blog equivalent of mulled wine and a mince pie! :) There's a poem for you in there I'm sure of it! And please feel free to share suggestions of your favourite Christmas poems (or carols, or moments, or just things for that matter...!), comments, or just your welcomed presence. :)
