Alphabet Poem: Angels Come Down

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

2nd Attempt for an Alphabet Poem

This poem is my second attempt at writing an Alphabet Poem.

It was written as a challenge by Veronica McDonald on Hubpages.com as a poetry exercise.

Definitions for a couple of words are below.

Xenial means friendly relationship between host and guest

Yiddish means a language spoken by eastern european jews and their descendants.

"Angels" by Robbie Williams

Poem Summary

Angels come down is an Alphabet poem about angels coming down from heaven. They love mankind with no hatred. The angels answer all questions raised speaking in the native language of eastern jews.

Angels Come Down

Angels beaming
come down eternally from God’s heaven
in joyous keeping,
loving mankind
no oppression promoted,
questions raised sent to ultimate victory
with xenial
yiddish zest.

An Alphabet poem

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on January 25, 2020:

Shannon,

Thank you.

I am delighted to hear you read it without remembering it was an Alphabet poem. So glad it reads well.

Give it a try. There are a couple different versions of doing this Alphabet poem. This one I found the easiest.

The other ones are published under my profile also.

Ann,

Thank you.

Shannon Henry from Texas on January 25, 2020:

I hadn't heard of this challenge here on HP, but you did a magnificent job with it! In fact, it flowed so smoothly that I forgot it was an alphabet poem and for a split second wondered where the letter 'B' was. What a beautiful poem and subject matter.

Ann Carr from SW England on January 25, 2020:

You've cleverly used words without sounding contrived and come up with thought provoking verse.

Ruby,

Thank you.

I was not sure about this one.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on January 20, 2020:

This is excellent Brenda and it's not easy to do. Bravo.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on January 19, 2020:

Caroline,

Thank you so much.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on January 19, 2020:

Kari,

Thank you.

I hope all is well.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on January 19, 2020:

Manatita44,

I only had a description from Veronica McDonald in her challenge for an Alphabet bet poem for each word to start with different letter.

Maybe I will give yours a try also.

Thanks for the information.

Caroline Marie on January 19, 2020:

Your words are powerful Brenda. Great poem.

Kari Poulsen from Ohio on January 19, 2020:

This is a lovely poem!

manatita44 from london on January 19, 2020:

Yours is beautiful, just different. It's not easy using 15 words or so, all with the letter 'a' before moving on to 'b' etc, doing the same and telling a good story too. We call this the alphabhet poem.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on January 19, 2020:

Clive,

Lol...I wish I had some homemade soup right now.

The temperature is 16 with wind chill it is zero. Definitely great day for some.

Thanks for reading.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on January 19, 2020:

Veronica,

Thank you so much.

You are the inspiration.

Have a great day!

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on January 19, 2020:

Manatita44,

You are so right. Our poetry tells a story.

I love your example. I have not tried it this way.

Mine was based on a challenge from Veronica McDonald.

Thanks for reading.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on January 19, 2020:

John,

Thank you.

I liked the video...it gives one hope.

So glad you stopped by to read my work.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on January 19, 2020:

Lorna,

Thank you.

I wasn't certain my words spoke the meaning, so I am glad to hear it did.

Thanks

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on January 19, 2020:

Harish,

Glad to hear it.

Thank you.

Clive Williams from Jamaica on January 19, 2020:

nice alphabet.....soup...i mean poem

Veronica McDonald from Alabama on January 19, 2020:

I love this one! Another great job.

manatita44 from london on January 19, 2020:

Lovely! A good attempt...

What we do in poetry performances, is much more difficult. We tell a story using the letters of the alphabet. Each letter will have many words, all beginning with the same letter, telling its part of the story. Spontaneous example:

Alfred advanced as an angel army, anchored around another Armoury.

Battleships began building bridges...

Much Love this Sunday.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on January 19, 2020:

Well done with this alphabet poem, Brenda. The 10 real angels video was great too. Makes you think.

Lorna Lamon on January 19, 2020:

Excellent Brenda and you have managed to convey the message really well. Loved it.

Harish Mamgain from New Delhi , India on January 18, 2020:

Hello Brenda, Love reading this another sortie. You weaved the poem so beautifully. Kudos to you.
