Putting away Xmas - a list poem

Thursday, 23 January 2014 18:03:22
This is my finished version. A list poem – and without, in the end, the addition of tidied (perhaps because I didn’t tidy!)

Sorted: baubles, balls and stars, January appointments
Removed: batteries from lights, wreaths from doors, notes from wallet
Recycled: cards, wrapping paper, some bits of string, wishes
Coiled: tinsel, tree light cables, heart-strings
Boxed: a golden bird, games, memories
Binned: the poor poinsettia, ragged wrappings, my old address book
Remaining: candles, cake, goodwill
