Ever the clever comedian, Wendy Cope is the mistress of short sassy rhymes. At Christmas, she excels herself. (I highly recommend clicking on her name in the labels below and reading her other Christmas offerings - you're guaranteed a chuckle. I firmly believe they should put her poems in crackers!)
Christmas Triolet - Wendy Cope
It's Christmas, season of wild bells
And merry carols. On the floor
Are gifts in pretty paper shells....
It's Christmas, season of wild Belle's
Big party. George's stomach swells
With ale: his wife's had even more.
It's Christmas, season of wild belles,
And merry Carol's on the floor.
