St. Brigid's Day Acrostic

Topic: Imbolc, St. Brigid's Day, Brigid

A to Z Challenge: Letter I

Poetic Style: Acrostric/Abecedarian

And now for today’s prompt to write an abecedarian poem – a poem with a structure derived from the alphabet. There are a couple of ways of doing this. You could write a poem of 26 words, in which each word begins with a successive letter of the alphabet. You could write a poem of 26 lines, where each line begins with a successive letter. Or finally, if you'd prefer to narrow your focus, perhaps you could write a poem which focuses on a few letters, using words that repeat them.

Brigid's Day

A day of festivals
Brigid, we come to see thee
Come and favour us
Day of dancing and singing
Either all or nothing to give.
Farewell, we bid the Winter
Greetings to the Spring forthcoming and
Home blessings are requested.
Imbolc is your time, Brigid,
Just as the sun rises and
Let us dance under the sunlight.
Merry Meet--
Never waste a chance!
Oh, St. Brigid grace this
Place, this Home
Quietly tread here and
Receive you tribute,
Tidings to you.
Under Brigid's watch
Verily, we now dance
Waiting for the time
eXpressing love--
You, loving with greatest
