2. Dance, Little Elf!

Your bright eyes light up as I say;
“Lookie here, at what I got you!”
An evil plan, staining my grin
Laughing at the shame I brought you

Bringing your feet up
In each little beat
Counting the rhythm
With pulls of loaded heat

Your face creases in fear,
and I laugh hard
Singing "Dance, little Elf!
Dance for the merry Orken lard!"

You whimper sadly
As I sing "Jingle"
I shout for you to go all the way
Finishing the line with Kringle

My friend's all join in
As your legs start to tire
But I pull again!
And we laugh even harder!

You collapse on the floor
Heaving for breath
And I shout "Merry Christmas!
You pathetic wench!"

I kick you in the bottom
Singing "Rudolph" and "Jack"
Send you flying away
I know you'll never come back!

Yet still I sing
At the top of my lungs;
"Dance little Elf!"
"Dance along with the beat of my gun!"

5. Gift for Another

What would I give a reindeer from an elf?
A blanket, socks or carrots from myself,
This is hard, this is tough,
But I promise, I won’t go off in a huff!

How about a nice new harness?
Well a reindeer can’t wear a dress.
But what if it’s slightly the wrong size?
Well I guess I’ll just have to idolize!

I’m running out of ideas fast,
My other friends are sorted!
I’m close to second to last!
I’ve got a horrible feeling, which involves the word slaughtered.

Its only a present I suppose,
No ideas or thoughts, coming to my head,
And I still haven’t chose!
Then I had a brilliant idea,

I grab the stuffed ted and wrap it in red paper,
Tying a pink bow across the top,
Adding just one more layer,
It looks like it was wrapped inside a shop!
Lets just hope he likes it,
That one handsome reindeer,
And hope that Christmas starts,
With a huge POP!

6.One and the same

It appears that Halflings and trolls,
In common, at least one thing they share,
For in Christmas to the love of their souls,
The exact same gift they'll compare.

As a Halfling most definitely would,
Be obliged by his love no resent,
The undying love that he could,
Sure, it's his heart he'd present.

As I'm sure you already know,
The troll has no such affection,
But of course to the one he will show,
The same Halfling heart in perfection.

As the former in words would define,
His love, as his heart will thud,
The latter on a platter will shine,
That heart in a puddle of blood.

Though the gifts are the same,
The emotions well told,
Words are the name of the game,
A heart may be served warm or cold.

A Halfling's compassion,
A troll's main course,
After all, that's the Christmas we fashion,
Delight be the goal but of course.

I hope it is easily seen,
For I have tried to portray,
Different races just may yet convene,
On this one merry day.

7.The Dragon's Gift

The Dragon's gift at Christmas
came as a big surprise
for he was feared by many
for the fire in his eyes

'Twas the eve of Christmas
when the wind came roaring 'round
and the people stopped and listened
as the bells began to sound

One by one the church bells rang
it grew into a song
of angel's wings and magic rings
and righting every wrong

Joy filled their hearts
and tears fell, and became lights
that flew up past the Dragon
and lit up the starry night

"Merry Christmas to all!!!"
came a melodious roar
and from a bag he'd carried
his entire hoard he poured

The Dragon flew away
and passed through Heaven's Gate
for a very special party
for which he'd not be late

The people stood rejoicing
at the magic he'd displayed
'twas a Christmas to remember
by the many friends he'd made...

11. “An Elf’s Christmas.”

Oh, when Christmas comes, with joy and cheer,
All I can see is pain and fear.

Every time, my gifts are bad,
As family goes, just one from Dad.

The ones I get, Are odds and ends,
Last year was a brick, I just got from friends.

Christmas became, such a waste of cash
Stupid junk, going in the trash.

Until one day, I came to see,
Yule-time is not, simply hokey.

On Christmas Eve, I met this Orc,
He wasn’t too bright; He was kind of a dork,

But when he saw me, He ran right up,
Said hello, and gave me a cup.

The mug he gave, was filled with Ale,
On the side, said “Holy Grail”

It made me laugh, till I roared
This ugly guy, I now adored.

Written by [Jewl]

12. 'Twas The Knight

'Twas the Knight who loved Christmas
and all through his castle
the excitement was spreading
to child, servant, vassal

The elf-lings were shining
the ornaments with care
for all knew their guest
would soon arrive there

The chimney flew sparks
as if from some wind
and like stars they flew 'round
as Saint Nicholas stepped in

"Welcome, my friend,"
spoke the Knight to his guest
who after his labors
had come for his rest

"We've prepared the west-wing,
it awaits at your pleasure,
and for your reindeer and elves
our hospitality hath no measure"

"My thanks, my good friend,"
spoke the Saint to the Knight
"After all of our giving,
we thank thee for this night"

And they sat down to table
and the feast did begin
as the dragons and unicorns
and others joined in

And later that night
as the stars turned to day
"Merry Christmas to All"
did the two best friends say...

18. at christmas eve

in the dark cold night
a halfling walks
little footsteps on the white snow.

in the dark cold night
an elfenlady walks
the bright moon lightens her path.

the forest is getting closer
the halfling walks his way
listens to the silence, about a special boy's birthday

the trees are wispering soft
the elfen maid goes her path
listen to the voice, of a special man in her heart

and in the forest, at a open space.
the halfling and the elfen maiden meet.
a star upon the sky makes them sing sweet

with joy in their hearts,
reunited at this special evening.
falling in each other arms, and laugh into the night so deep

he gives her a wooden star, to put into her hair.
couse for this special night.
he wants to surprise her with,his home made gift.

she gives him a silver watch.
to see the time everywere.
she wants to give her friend some of her love to share.

and for a while they stare to the heaven.
to the big star above their heads.
listening to the rush of the wind trough the trees.

then, like someone wisperd it in their ears.
they turn around, and walk their own paths,back home
to the lands they belong. to celebrate christmas with their own.

19. Presents and Joy

Come all ye elfs, halflings and ducks
Dwarfs, Humans, Orcs, All Good Luck
Draw a name, out of the hat
And see who you drew, and that will be that
Buy them a gift, whatever you please
Not to expensive, plus not to cheap
Try to pick something, that they might fancy
Some stilts for a Dwarf, they might find them handy
Halfling and Humans, would like anything
For the ducks and the orcs, buy them a ring

Christmas day comes, under the tree
More and more presents, some small as a pea
Big ones, Small ones, skinny ones, fat ones
So many presents, their were tons
All of the races, opened their gifts
Some of them though, were too big to lift
Bicycles, stilts, hats and rings,
Necklaces, Bracelets, all that bling blings
All races were happy, all filled with joy
Listening to music, and playing with each toy

Christmas is joyful thats what I say
Eltown makes Christmas an even better day

23. A Rather Odd Gathering

Upon Christmas Eve did gather around
A merry party, wrought with sight and sound
Of Orc and Elf, of child and old,
Gathered they this night for a story told.
Was in tradition of these oddly guests
To share a tale and make his own best.

From five Orcish brutes bathed full in rabble
Opened a story of vicious battle
Told deep from the gut and up from the bowel
And down to the guests whom replied with a cowl.

The Men with their valour did storm up a fable
Of fire and brimstone, of gods and with grand label
Whom ruled by iron and mastered by word
But the guests’ replies found it all quite absurd.

Then came turn for the Elvish of glamour and poise
That did sing their soft hymn with but little a noise
Weaving tale of their wisdom, of old melodies passed
And boring their guests two minutes too fast.

When time came round for a Halfling’s tale,
All was quiet and solemn; all did look to fail,
But did the story of a Halfling child
Return to the party a raved sense of wild.
He spoke of great kings, of grand gods and of war,
Told of virtues eternal and to this even more.
He gave to all a good gift, and all gave back an ear.
It was a Halfling who told the best story this year!

24. Christmas in Elftown!

It is Christmastime and the Yule log is burning
and home from the mines the Dwarves are returning
laden with chests full of gemstones and gold
that they are giving away to the young and the old.

In the meantime the Orcs have come down from the mountains
for at this time of year they head for Elftown's fountains
‘cause their gift to the other inhabitants hereabouts
is fresh cleaned bodies in just laundered breechclouts.

And the Elves that have tirelessly looked after the town
receive plenty of gifts from their neighbours all around
including so many baskets from overlaying Ducks
full to the brim with eggs not sent off in trucks.

Lucky for all, the Humans brought Christmas Day fare
of sweetmeats and candy and apples to share
and the Haflings were fast to get in on the trick
bringing each miner Dwarf a brand new shiny pick!

28. Through A Child's Eyes

Twas a cool winter’s eve
But the fireplace was lit
With friends all gathered
For just a little bit.

The men and dwarves,
By the fire’s glow
sharing their tales
Of silent nights long ago.

The elves and ducks
Ate the haflings’ feast
Prepared with love
And kindness at least.

Then there sat
A hafling young
On his elder’s knee
Which from he sprung.

Seeing in the corner
A large figure there
Head in his hands
His rump in the chair.

Scuttling to the tree
The halfling snatched a gift
And came close to the orc
Making him shift.

The Orc glanced at the box
Covered in ribbon red
Lifted his hand to the child
And patted his head.

Written by [Lullaby]

29. Sleepless

How many years have passed?
How many years have gone?
Have I waited long enough, or
Have I waited far too long?

My dreams have fled so long ago,
Leaving me with nights in terror.
I feel cold, I feel alone.
And I feel that I must tell her.

Who I am is not important,
Just another dark skinned elf.
But you, my lovely human girl,
Are the one who haunts my bed.

Did you come to me that night,
Or was it all a cursed dream?
For when I saw you kissing him,
That, I know, was not a dream.

On Christmas eve I’ll come to you
And leave a present at your door.
Not a necklace or a diamond,
But a poem in the snow.

All my nights till now were torment,
You’ve been in my dreams since then.
Leave me be, you blonde-haired siren!
Bring peace to my dreams again.

Written by [PredatorX]

30. Figuring Out Presents

What to give an Orc?
Well, there’s plenty need for make-up,
Some deodorant and a spa treatment?
I’ll give a lotion of some such.

Now what to give a human,
Maybe a life expanding potion,
Cures or a spell for beauty,
I don’t know, there just so picky!

Dwarves and Halflings are easy,
In fact, I can but the same for all,
Tall soled shoes for boys,
and pink platforms for the gals.

Ducks are an entire different thing,
I mean they swim around all day
And haven’t found out how to talk.
If I taught them to speak, what would they say?

Elves are easy, I know, I am one,
Just give some beautiful bows and arrows,
Magical orbs and enchanted trinkets,
Or maybe some incense?

Hmmm... now that I think about it,
I just don’t know what to give.

31. The one who is left alone

Inside the warm cabin
All is well and jolly
Orcs, Elves, Ducks and Humans,
Swapping presents and hanging up holly

All inside is happy
As all races celebrate together
Their warm hearts could not be dulled
Even in the wint'ry weather

Yet outside, cold, in the snow
Is one poor soul
One poor soul excluded
Just like a runt of a foal

Left outside, to himself,
No company or joy
And he stares through the iced window pane
As they all play with new toys

He has no money, he has no shelter
He has not got a golden throne
So here he stands, by himself
The one who is left alone

Written by [omgOMEGA]

32. Thoughts of an elf

The elf is so giving, loving and sweet.
she wants to do the impossible.
she wants to make him smile,
hes a differnt race
his face so kind
deep down his human form never
feels any joy.
she ever so longs to bring him some
this upcomming holliday will hopefuly make him not feel so lonesome
the thoughts of an elf mean so little to him
he says do leve him be he has no time
he breaks her heart
she goes to weap
all she wanted for christmas was a little bit of love\

Written by [Sonya Blue]

33. Gift

Looking at her reflection
in the Christmas light,
the smallest of pixies
has a heart knotted tight.

Indeed, year after year,
she celebrated alone,
in her small murky mushroom,
with love unknown.

She sniffed and weeped,
and shuffled into bed,
the Eve of Christmas,
her loneliness spread.

Meanwhile, her mushroom house
could stand it no more,
watching the little pixie
cry...uncared for.

It summoned its strength,
and sprouted glorious wings,
soaring gently
to where the land sings.

The small pixie awoke,
hearing Christmas delight.
From outside her mushroom,
the voices invite.

To her surprise and tear,
she was actually adored.
To be where the land sings...
she was no longer ignored.

And so ends the story,
of the blooming shroom,
that spared a small pixie,
from her lonely gloom.

(So what's the moral, you ask?)

Do not give up hope,
for you never know,
something unexpectable,
could sprout through the snow.

Written by [spiritee]

34. Bright Lights

Look to the houses so full of lights
for children are singing and full of great thoughts
the laughter and joy for all the girls and boys
for when santa comes he will see the bright lights
he will bring toys and gifts and bring lots of jeer
for everyone has been good, throughout this whole year
now sing your favorite charols and drink your cider
for the lights on the christmas tree are getting brighter
everyone loves this time of year
its a time to be close and bring in the cheer
families are together and lovers too
children throw snowballs as they usually do
what is it about this time of year
when people can just love
and not shead a tear
when the first snow comes and blankets the ground
the morning air is fill with laughter
from a little child
but when the night falls on this day of sights
you will look to the houses with all the bright lights.

39.) The golden wand

Christmas glee brings christhmas gifts
Yes of course it's christmas again
A time to be happy and a time to love
Jack the sagged looking orc
Thought of wooing fli the fairy princess
He wondered what a present will be good
For such a beauty as fli
He went to town to buy a gift
But couldn't find one so nice
Candy canes, Xmas trees and Santa suits
Were not suitable enough for fli
He then remembered his old treasure chest
Lying pale and dusty in his dark cave
He thougt of searching it for once
For he might find something worthy for fli
Going through the chest in the cave
He found the most amazing gift ever
An old Golden wand glittering in the dark
He took it to fli in the woods
She was so happy that she confessed that
This was the best Gift she has ever had
With the wand she made a wish
To stay with old Jack as his lady
And happily together the lived ever after

Written by [Lakayana]

40. From you to him to me!

Twinkle of star; silence of laughter
The present passes around; through the sacred hands.
Sprite with slivering hair and enchanting eyes passes the present to-
Orc with bulging skin and filthy rags passes the present to-
Elf with the slender ears and snow white skin passes the present to-
Imp with shrieking giggles and razor talons passes the present to-

48. The Elves's Gift

Mortals in a world tormented
By a lack of love fermented

Wish for a peacebringer of sorts
Or maybe something just for sports

Elivish masters of their skill
Work out chrome metal until

there appears a blade sharp and bold
More valuable than a pile of gold

On the eve of a god-like birth
The messengers travel to human mirth

And silently deliver their gift
So next day a man finds it, miffed

The runes engraved on the blade
Made him smile at the elvish aide

Oh what a Christmas this had been
To have given a deliverence from sin

The man turn to the moutain banks
And to the elves he gave silent thanks

49. What would a Duck give a dwarf?

What would a duck give a dwarf?
The holiday season is near
Time to spread the cheer.
The duck wanders through the store.
Everyone seems to stare.
But the duck don’t give a care.
What could the duck give the dwarf?
He sees many things it should like.
But despite, nothing will do.
Until he came across the evening dew.
Right there before his eyes
Was the perfect gift.
A bottle of rum shall do
So what would a duck get a dwarf?
A bottle of rum of course!

50. A Christmas Fright
Said the orc to the elf,
“'Tis Christmas today, now what would you like?”
Said the elf to the orc,
“for us not to fight.”

Said the orc to the elf,
“I could give you a mace!”
Said the elf to the orc,
“I just want world peace!”

Said the orc to the elf,
“I could give you an axe,”
Said the elf to the orc,
“what I want is a pax.”

Said the orc to the elf,
“I could give you some slaves!”
Said the elf to the orc,
“That's just so depraved.”

Said the orc to the elf,
“I could give you a blight!”
Said the elf to the orc,
“that'd give me a fright.”

Said the orc to the elf,
“now that's an idea!”
Said the elf to the orc,
“please don't make me fear.”

Then the orc shouted “BOO!!”
and that elf is still running,
though Christmas is over and done,
and what I would say,
though it may not be kind,
well I'd say that that elf had it coming!

Your poem is how you wish for someone's laughter as a gift, it doesn't describe any races. We are not obligated to message you about your entry. You are obligated to follow the theme and watch the page yourself. We can't hold everyone's hand, you have responsibilities when entering a contest.
