Five Free Verse Poems About Xmas

1. The Silence of Snowfall

In the quiet night, snowflakes descend,

each a whisper of winter’s song.

They blanket the world in white,

a canvas for Christmas dreams.

Underneath the twinkling lights,

we find solace in shared warmth.

A fireplace crackles, its dance mirrored

in the sparkle of loved ones’ eyes.

Carried on the wings of a silent night.

Sonnet

Five Sonnet Poems About Xmas

1. Christmas Magic

In the heart of winter, a magic unfolds,

A season of warmth in the biting cold.

Lights twinkle in harmony, bright and bold,

Telling tales of yore, stories of old.

Snowflakes dance, each a unique design,

Reflecting the moon’s enchanting shine.

Under the tree, gifts patiently align,

In anticipation of the dawn’s divine.

The aroma of cookies, a joyful feast,

Laughter and carols, to say the least.

Love and goodwill, never ceased,

On this day, every conflict leased.

Christmas, a time of peace and bliss,

Wrapped in a silent snowy kiss.

The Christmas tree sparkling bright.

Stockings hung with hopeful hearts,

As the Christmas magic imparts.

A carol sung from door to door,

Spread the love, let it pour.

For on this night, all is calm and bright,

A beacon of hope, the Christmas light.

3. Santa’s Journey

From the North, in his magical sleigh,

Santa embarks on his annual relay.

Guided by Rudolph, with his nose so bright,

Delivering gifts throughout the night.

Down the chimney, with a sack full of toys,

For all the world’s good girls and boys.

Cookies and milk, a well-deserved treat,

Before he makes his hasty retreat.

A whisper of magic, a touch of whimsy,

Santa’s journey, nothing but flimsy.

A tale of love, of giving and cheer,

That we hold dear, year after year.

By Dan Higgins 2024

4. The Gift of Love

Beneath the tree, gifts wrapped in bows,

But the best gift, everyone knows,

Is not found under the festive tree,

It’s the love we share, as plain as can be.

Kindness and joy, peace and goodwill,

The true spirit of Christmas, a thrill.

A smile, a hug, a comforting word,

The sweetest melody ever heard.

So, this Christmas, let us remember,

The greatest gift, December to December,

Is the love we give, the love we receive,

The love in our hearts, this Christmas Eve.

If I could make a Christmas wish,

It would be more than gifts or dish.

For joy that lasts beyond the night.

I’d wish for laughter, loud and clear,

For hope that conquers every fear.

For kindness, compassion, understanding,

For a Christmas miracle, truly outstanding.

So here’s my wish, simple and true,

A Merry Christmas, from me to you.

May your heart be filled with cheer,

And your home with love, year after year.

Villanelle Poem

Five Villanelle Poems About Xmas

1. The Magic of Christmas Eve

In the stillness of the chilled night air,

Snowflakes fall, a spectacle so rare,

On Christmas Eve, magic fills the square.

Candles glow in windows everywhere,

Children’s laughter echoes with flair,

In the stillness of the chilled night air.

Families gather with stories to share,

Love and joy are palpable, beyond compare,

On Christmas Eve, magic fills the square.

Bells ring out, their melody declare,

Peace and goodwill, a universal prayer,

In the stillness of the chilled night air.

Underneath the tree, gifts sit in pairs,

Hope and anticipation, everyone bears,

On Christmas Eve, magic fills the square.

As the clock strikes midnight, we become aware,

Of the enchantment that this night wears,

In the stillness of the chilled night air,

On Christmas Eve, magic fills the square.

2. Beneath the Christmas Tree

Beneath the Christmas tree, secrets lie,

Wrapped in paper, under twinkling lights high,

Gifts of love, beneath the starry sky.

Children whisper wishes, their hopes fly,

In letters to Santa, they apply,

Beneath the Christmas tree, secrets lie.

Ribbons and bows, colors that tie,

The season’s greetings, an emotional supply,

Gifts of love, beneath the starry sky.

The scent of pine, a nostalgic sigh,

Memories of yuletides gone by,

Beneath the Christmas tree, secrets lie.

As the carols softly amplify,

In our hearts, the Christmas spirit lies,

Gifts of love, beneath the starry sky.

And as the snowflakes multiply,

We embrace the joy, as time goes by,

Beneath the Christmas tree, secrets lie,

Gifts of love, beneath the starry sky.

By Dan Higgins 2024

3. The Christmas Star

The Christmas star, so bright and far,

Guiding us to where our true hearts are,

In the silence of the night, it’s our avatar.

Its light pierces through the winter’s scar,

A beacon of hope, seen from afar,

The Christmas star, so bright and far.

It whispers tales of a wise men’s memoir,

Of a child born under its light, a superstar,

In the silence of the night, it’s our avatar.

Across the world, its message spar,

Peace on Earth, erase the war,

The Christmas star, so bright and far.

Reflecting on the year, we’re at par,

With love and kindness, we raise the bar,

In the silence of the night, it’s our avatar.

As we celebrate, near and far,

We remember what the season’s for,

The Christmas star, so bright and far,

In the silence of the night, it’s our avatar.

By Dan Higgins 2024

On Christmas eve, the carol of hearts begin,

Love and joy, a melody within,

The song of Christmas, a timeless hymn.

In every home, in every inn,

The spirit of Christmas, an eternal win,

On Christmas eve, the carol of hearts begin.

With each chime, each violin,

Peace and goodwill, an endless spin,

The song of Christmas, a timeless hymn.

In the glow of lights, in the festive din,

We find the true meaning, under our skin,

On Christmas eve, the carol of hearts begin.

As we gather, kin with kin,

The harmony of love, a perfect blend in,

The song of Christmas, a timeless hymn.

In the warmth of the hearth, in the cold wind’s grin,

We celebrate the joy, the season brings in,

On Christmas eve, the carol of hearts begin,

The song of Christmas, a timeless hymn.

5. The Silence of Snowfall

In the silence of snowfall, Christmas whispers,

A symphony of white, winter’s crisp verse,

Underneath the moonlight, the landscape shimmers.

Trees adorned in ice, nature’s quivers,

In the hush, the magic of Christmas immerses,

In the silence of snowfall, Christmas whispers.

Each flake, a promise, as it delivers,

The joy of the season, in gentle flutters,

Underneath the moonlight, the landscape shimmers.

As the night deepens, the cold air blisters,

Yet in our hearts, the warmth of Christmas festers,

In the silence of snowfall, Christmas whispers.

By the fireplace, the Yuletide glitters,

In stories told, in songs that winters,

Underneath the moonlight, the landscape shimmers.

And as dawn breaks, the world considers,

The gift of love, that Christmas ushers,

In the silence of snowfall, Christmas whispers,

Underneath the moonlight, the landscape shimmers.
