A poem to get you in the Christmas Spirit! Yay for Christmas!
*UPDATE* This is a poem in the Sestina form (hence the title). I thought Sestinas were a pretty popular form, but apparently some of you have never seen one before. A sestina is a seven stanza poem (six sestets, one tercet) in which six words are repeated at the end of each line in a specific order depending on the stanza. My six words were "cat," "story," "tree," "bristles," "paper," and "wind." It's a really cool form and a fun thing to try if you're looking for a challenge. Anyway, I just thought I would clarify, as I don't want to take credit for an "original rhyme scheme" or something.
