Christmas Sonnet

Though bustle of the season does surround
and fills the day from sunrise to sunset,
still, you should stop and listen to the sound
-heaven telling what we should not forget.

The angels’ wish for man this season lies-
when thoughts become a much more gentle kind.
The earth all year is filled with anguished cries.
'Tis Christmas joins angelic and man's minds.

For Christmas-tides do waft upon the air
floating freely along on angels’ breath.
In quiet stillness one can hear their prayer-
the wish for man, of peace and happiness.

Celestial chorus! -Listen to the wind
exalting, “Peace on earth. Goodwill to men!”

Elizabeth- All is heart.

Perhaps: 'does surround/filling our days'...

Nicely done,

Response: Angels and sonnets
I am not allowed a lot of internet time when it is prime kid chat time.
My dad said he thought I was born with a phone growing out of my ear. I can relate to his thoughts now, however, I have zero typing skills.
Thanks for looking in at this. I love sonnets and have a long way to mastery, but what better thought for sonnet than Christmas?
B7, is that a vitamin? (You do energize all with your comments)- I like your suggestion very much.

This was penned after (more than) a bit of block, by mother asking if poetry flows freely into minds.
My best always does, and then there's tweaking. Tweaking is the part that turns good into really, pretty good.

With this, it flowed so quickly, until I realized for sonnet I needed 4 more lines- middle stanza to me is obvious. If I could get a better flow to L8, I think I might like this.

Aside from that garbage, it was first snow that inspired. You go outside and listen to a snowfall in the country and you hear the flakes land and all is stillness. It's a big blanket of clean and cold and feels like mouthwash, or kissing after mouthwash- but you know it is there by something greater and you get to witness it. It is a gift.
I thoroughly believe in angels and don't know exactly how it works but know they walk among us and maybe- become us- at some times to some who need angels.
Hey, I just heard a bell ring...
Thanks, and sorry I had that last cup of coffee-

ahhh, I digress. Thanks to each so much for stopping by.
and Lucie, I finally get to have Christmas at home and plan to make several kinds of perrogi- wish you could stop by for at least o-pwa-tech- (I spelled phonetically so you might know what I mean Lucie. I don't know how to begin to spell the official...
- hahah! not true... "o"!) ;)
