The Queue: An Etheree

Father Christmas, Christmas, December


My daughters have recently posted photos of my grandchildren in the company of Santa.  With that in mind and with this week’s Colleen’s Challenge  to write a syllabic poem which uses synonyms for give and shake; I, in the holiday spirit, came up with the following Etheree poem.  The form consists of ten lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 syllables.

The children wait.
And glad expectation
Causing little limbs to quake;
The promise of presents to come
When their turn in line finally comes
And they sit upon Saint Nicholas’ knee.
