A Christmas Wish Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


I CAN NOT give you happinessA
For wishes long have ceased to bringB
The Fortune which to page and kingB
They brought in those good centuriesC
When with a quaint and starry wandD
Witches turned poor men's thoughts to goldE
And Cinderella's carriage rolledE
Through moonlight into FairylandF
I may but wish you happinessA
Not Pleasure's dusty fruit to hndF
But wines of Mirth and Friendship kindF
And Love to make with you a homeG
But may Our Lord whose Son has comeH
Now heed the wish and make it trueI
Even as elves were wont to doI
When wishing could bring happinessA
