Author's Notes: This poem, "Christmas Love," is written as a "Dodoitsu," which is a Japanese fixed folk song form. It's configured into a 26-syllable standalone stanza of four lines of 7, 7, 7, 5 syllables respectively. (This special Japanese form is both unrhymed and non-metrical.) In the case of "Christmas Love," I have a linked-form Dodoitsu, consisting of two Dodoitsu stanzas. The overall message of this particular write speaks for itself. Merry Christmas!! (Gary Bateman - December 1, 2015) (Dodoitsu)
