The Seasonal Trend

It’s vintage, it’s tacky, it’s all the rage.

Bright garish colours screaming from your chest,

a trend for masses of folk to engage,

in all sincerity or merely jest.

When your grandma was knitting, who’d have guessed?

A fashion disaster, now so adored

that everyone’s absolutely obsessed,

and buying as many as they can afford!

Love for the festive jumper trend has soared,

and yet I still don’t own a single one.

Maybe this Christmas I’ll get my reward,

then I’ll be able to join in the fun.

It’s vintage, it’s tacky, it’s just begun.

It’s a trend that none of us can outrun.

The Twelve Sonnets of Christmas

Day # 7

Irish Sonnet 

Obviously influenced by the English sonnet there ia also still a Celtic influece in making a link from stanza to stanza.. It still follows the three quaterns and a couplet pattern, but each stanza is linked to the next giving a rhyme pattern of;

a. b. a. b. . b. c. b. c. . c. d. c. d. .d.d.

Day # 1 – The Christmas Season

Day # 2 – A Chance Under the Misteltoe

Day # 3 – Christmas Alone

Day # 4 – The Forbidden Toy

Day # 5 – A Mother’s Christmas

Day # 6 – The Occasional Invasion

Day # 8 – The Nutcracker

Day # 9 – Naughty or Nice

Day # 10 – Something more

Day # 11 – The Nativity

Day # 12 – The Man in Red Silk
