I cruised in Santa’s Christmas ships parade,
Decorated vessels afloat at night.
Spreading good cheer on a magic crusade,
All looking so festive, merry and bright.
Met with jubilation, we are a welcome sight,
Heavens rejoicing, shooting stars galore.
Gifts of color in the dark to excite,
Carols are sung, hallelujahs ashore.
The skippers snug at their helms take delight,
Happy to escort the jolly old sprite.

December is from the Latin word decem (meaning ten). In the Roman calendar, it was originally the tenth month of the year that began in March. The winter days following December were not part of any month. To reflect December and my tenth poem, we’re trying the Decuain (pronounced deck•won) poetry form. Created by Shelley A. Cephas, it’s a short poem made up of 10 lines, which can be written on any subject. There are 10 syllables per line and the poem is written in iambic pentameter. There are 3 choices of rhyme scheme: ababbcbcaa, ababbcbcbb, or ababbcbccc.
