Dainty Carols

"I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play," --- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I wrapped myself
In my blanket,
A cup of tea
Between my hands.

I thought of long gone winter days
When the world stopped
Cause a wee boy was born.


The Sapphonic Triad
A two-line quotation (Free verse but max total of sixteen syllables - must be concise and memorable) followed by a quatrain, four lines each of four syllables, finally an 8-4-6 syllable envoi that moves us on somewhere...it should have a "satori" feeling.
