Christmas home decor- a wreath poem

Christmas home decor

Short and round is our Christmas wreath
Wreath we made of the tree branches
Branches are tied with the red ribbons
Ribbons stuck with berries,ready is the wreath.

Wreath is placed on our door’s foot steps
Steps away is the snow on tree not far
Far away, look, how He laid His holy hands
Hands on things He wants us to see and praise.

Praise him, be quick your voice to raise
Raise your hands his love to receive 
Receive love in your every choice forever
Forever on Christmas with this decor wreath.

====================================

This type of poetry was first introduced by George Herbert, a contemporary
of Shakespeare. There are two ways to write it. In above poem, the last
word of the first line is the first word of the next line and so on. Or one
may use any word of the first line as the first word of the next line. Variations
of the word can also be used.

    Corrected mine to repeat the last words in each line as the first of the next, Dr. Ram, and shortened it to eight lines as you requested. Thanks for the Soup mail.

    I'm glad I came to see the nice example you provided, Dr. Ram. I love how you enjoy forms in poetry!

    Dr Ram...thank you for the opportunity to try out this new poetry form....my wreath is not free verse....I found that it more easily fell into rhyme because I was trying a few Dylan Thomas flourishes...Would you kindly advise me whether the lack of free verse structure is a crucially negative factor in your contest please? If so I can alter the structure. I look forward to hearing from you...thank you....Syd

    After reading your comment, I withdrew my entry to the holiday home contest. I didn't know we were supposed to feature a menu and I don't think there was much on the table in the manger. Thanks for letting me know about this requirement.
