Wreath twisted by handwork combined
A wreath with strands of holly and vine.
A seasonal sign the withy willow with blood beads red 
With branches by hand, a woven wreath design.
Wreath writhing wrists work wildly,
Wildly within a world worn worthy,  winter wanted,
And work-ed  wreath, to enliven winter whitened door or walls,
Wreath in the wild winter will wild wishes fulfil.

Dr Rams Christmas wreath contest.

    Hi Joe we seem to be on a binge of miscommunication LOL no matter I don't remember saying you were in a contest? Perhaps I said why not enter my new one with a ballad for Halloween? Creepy Irish Critters? Anyway I do enjoy your work and your positive attitude! Light & Love

    ps Unless you withdrew this one from the contest? But then why couldn't you just enter it again in a new spot? Dr. Ram still has three spots left at this very moment!

    I'ts definitely not too late. I saw Dr. Ram still is waiting to close the contest. Just go to "edit" and put the NEW version you posted in the place of THIS one. The new version will then show up in Dr. Ram's box right here. Then you can take THIS one and repost it, and of course, just delete the new one from its new place where you have it. You don't have to re-enter the contest because this is your "spot" right here, already entered. You can play around in this box all you want! Luv, Andrea

    Also, you can use anything from the preceding line, it does not have to necessarily be the last word! goodnight now, Joe!

    Joe, this is very nice. But I feel I should tell you. Reread the rules how to write this poem. If I am not mistaken, you have to use the last word of each line as the first word of a new line. HOpe that makes sense to you. LUv, Andrea

    Terrific description of the wreath in a poem enhanced by both rhyme and alliteration, Joe. Dr. Ram will love this one. Wishing you success and blessings, Carolyn
