Celebration

by Milly Hayward   Oct 10, 2017


The party's kicked off, with quite a bang
All my old friends, have come out to hang
Champagne is flowing, fast, bubbly and bright
Green patterned bunting, is hanging in sight

Music is playing, the old stuff I think
Now they're all singing to Pink or the Link
Laughters abounding, much fun to be had
Everyone's dancing now, happy and glad

Next there is food served, with scrummy nice smell
We've fallen under, the chefs magic spell
The host has arrived, in splended red dress
Given her thanks, and a toast to success

Last but not least, the great chocolate cake
The largest piece, I just reach out and take
It melts in the mouth, then just disappears
Such a great taste, I've not found in years

Things getting slow, winding down to the end
It's time to part company, my dear friend
Let's not wait months, for the next gift of time
We can meet next week, for a gin and lime

    Let's start with the theme of the poem.
    It's celebration, I mean who doesn't want it.
    All of us can relate to this one as we all need celebration in our life.
    Infact, most of us find little occasions in our life so that we can celebrate.
    So I loved the theme as it is my favorite.

    Mood of the poem is about happiness, enjoyment, sharing thoughts, cracking jokes, even making new friends.
    This is what happens most of the times in the celebrations.

    The imaginary you used are from visual to audible to olfactory to tactile.
    Like in first stanza it is visual in these lines

    Champagne is flowing, fast, bubbly and bright
    Green patterned bunting, is hanging in sight

    Along with the alliteration "flowing fast" and "bubbly bright."

    In 2nd it is audible

    Music is playing, the old stuff I think
    Now they're all singing to Pink or the Link

    In 3rd it is olfactory

    Next there is food served, with scrummy nice smell
    We've fallen under, the chefs magic spell

    And tactile in fourth one

    The largest piece, I just reach out and take
    It melts in the mouth, then just disappears

    And Like a meal is incomplete without a dessert. 5th stanza is that sweet course.
    Saying to all the friends that let's not wait for happiness we can have it whenever we want.
    Let's meet again, soon, and celebrate the gift called life as much as we can.
    Because life is all about happiness and we feel happy when we are with our dear ones.

    Milly, the rhyme scheme, aabb.
    I always find it difficult to write in this scheme.
    You did it with perfection.
    All in all, a very good poem on the theme of celebration and the way you captured it with your words, I loved it.
    I didn't find any flaws.

    I can taste the gin and lime...I might have to go and get one! Really nice poem. You can almost hear the chink of glasses and music.

    I love chocolate cake too and I would get the biggest slice too, Milly. A very light-hearted, enjoyable read. Beautifully rhymed too. Loved it.
