Holiday Haiku (Poem)

Holiday Haiku


Lonely This Christmas?
The sweet Angels Among Us
sing of Better Days.


Save the Best for Last:
Silver and Gold, a Sleigh Ride
When a Child Is Born.


The Paper Angels
Go Tell It on the Mountain.
Mary, Did You Know?


If We Make It Through
December, My Only Wish
is Snowflakes of Love.


Let the Season Take
Wing. I've Got My Love to Keep
Me Warm. Fa La La.


What Are You Doing
New Year's Eve, Up on the House
Top, Santa Baby?


Here We Come A-Caroling
the Same Old Lang Syne.
Oh Run, Rudolph, Run!


All of the above use titles of holiday songs and as few other words as possible.
