Christmas Market – B&P’s Shadorma and Beyond – The Circular Poem

Hello, Bastet here for a new episode of B&P.

Today we’re going to look into one of the many variations of the Circular Poem. I first came across this variation reading a blog written at Jane Dougherty Writes a few weeks ago where Jane, a very talented poet, challenged her readers to try the form. I found it very stimulating indeed!

So the circular poem we’re going to try is Jane’s variation of the form as described here in her words:

“A circular poem is one that goes round full circle.

The last word of the first line rhymes with the first word of the following line and so on until you end up back at your first line.

Lines can be any length, it’s the rhyme that’s important.”

Christmas market in the city
Sea of people looking around
Background of lights and decors
Stores, malt wine, stars and figures
Firs, sweets and nuts for home to bring
Meeting friends, shopping spree so precious
Christmas market in the city

Meeting friends
At Christmas market
Drinking wine
Having fun
Peaceful atmosphere today
All so valuable
