I know everyone is busy right now, but thought we could attempt a challenge of Christmas Lunes

The lune is an American form of poetry similar to the haiku. One way of writing a lune is to count the syllables: thirteen syllables are arranged in 5/3/5 format, five syllables in the first line, three syllables in the second, and five in the third. A second variation of the lune is to count the words: three words in the first line; five words in the second line; three words in the third line.

Poetry contains almost all you need to know about life

Through the long, cold night,

baby squirms,

eager to be born

while we were sleeping
and dreaming
snow silently fell
