Happy New Year everyone :-)
I just read through all poems again
because they are so wonderful, diverse, creative and heart warming. I've been blown away by the effort everyone put into their creations, thank you so much for participating and for those wonderful, festive, encouraging and funny words.
From a random draw - luckily, because I could never pick favourites from all those great entries - here are the winners:
- 1x One Month Gametime (EU) goes to: Reedwand
Congratulations! We'll contact the winners within the next two days :-)
And because those poems were too beautiful not to share again, here are the entries of the winners:
I have a goat
his name is Baa'l
he really is
the greatest pal.
They say he's evil
but I don't mind;
he's the cutest goat
you'll ever find!
Prickly green nettles tickle my hair.
With a bat of my paw you fly through the air.
The sound of a crash, a shout of "Oh no!"
Eyes on the next orb reflecting thine glow.
Large, grasping hands reach out for my tail.
I leap unto thee with a holiday wail.
Climbing and clawing my way to the top,
Causing your baubles to tremble and drop.
Reaching the summit of bright shining light.
Glittery trinkets, sparkling and bright.
"These don't belong here." I say to my self,
Just like that dastardly Elf on the Shelf.
He has it coming, I think, and I fume,
That's why I'll send him off to his doom.
With that dead look in his eyes, he stares out at me.
With a battle cry holler I leap from the tree,
Onto the mantle, where the elf now sits,
I give him a shove cause that's where I fits.
It's that time of year,
for festivities and cheer.
But worry is afoot my dear,
Metzen is missing and hes our reindeer!
WInter's Little Helper told us her wonderful plan,
We will rescue Metzen, we will do it for every pet, and man!
Into the pet dungeon we did explore, where Metzen was at the end,
And we battled every pet galore, we werent concerned for the time we would spend!
We got to Metzen, he was still alive,
I even leveled Jingles to twenty five!
All is now great, and happiness has been found,
There is just little paw prints on the ground.
Xu-Fu has saved me hours of time
Providing resources that prompted this rhyme
More moments with those we hold so dear
Is the greatest gift of all, happy new year
On the morning of Winterveil,
Chills in the air,
We wake with excitement
And wonder, for there
Are the gifts we had hoped for,
And to our suprise,
One shakes to be freed,
Something Jingles Inside!
So gather companions,
The new and the old
And keep them all close
In this terrible cold,
Both Horde and Alliance
For many an age
Would celebrate Winter
With gifts on this day.
And whether the titans
Bring chills from the north,
Or elements heal us
From under the frost,
What's wrong about giving
A present to friends
Who raid with you always
And fight to the end?
Now sleep with full bellies,
For war returns soon,
In Azeroth trust
That conflict will bloom,
But just for tonight,
Sleep sound in our beds
Snowy owls weaving,
Sweet dreams in our heads.
Year? Who knows?
Ice on the ground;
a cold wind blows.
Here I am,
in Dragon Soul.
Old and jaded;
heart of coal.
On my way,
to Deathwing's end.
Trying to get
a little friend.
(The last I need,
I must confess.)
Aboard a gunship,
I AM prepared.
Through gritted teeth,
I make a vow.
"One more try;
I'll do this now."
And if this dragon
I'm going to leave-
I'm going insane."
The fight begins,
I climb the spine.
I kill the adds,
It's going fine.
Maybe this time!
Oh no, no, WHY?
The dragon span.
I'm going to cry.
I fly away,
into the sky.
I wipe again.
I hearthstone. /sigh
Jingles plays with snow
Rotten Little Helper is slow
And snowball hits
Rotten Helper gets mad
… Jingles is dead
I'm a pet battler all through the day.
I'm a pet collector so long as I play.
I need them now!
From kitty to cow!
Is there a new one this holiday?
Bonestorm! Bonestorm! Bonestorm!
Brightpaw, use Arcane Storm!
We are the best,
Now take down this pest!
With this weather we shall transform.
'Souls fEast on enDless shrieKing'
Is Baa'l the one you're seeking?
You'll be a participant,
To Murder The Innocent!
All the havok that we're wreaking!
My favourite are the Undead,
Many victories in their stead.
I'll collect the dogs,
And all the frogs!
Even a singing sunflower head.
So I pet battle all day,
And I collect as I play.
From the ones that you farm,
or exhange for pet charm!
What Muar can I say?
As snow reflects the winter moon
And the stars shine clear and bright
I gather all my tiny toons
And gear up for a fight.
My little Snowman freezes all
My Runt's spike will impale
While Winter's Little Helper gives
The Gift of Winter's Veil.
My Boneshard friend provides a chill
Valk fills them with despair
But peace on earth and all goodwill
Comes from my Arctic Hare.
That fuzzy bun just dodges all
And burrows far from harm
Not even Plushy Elek's got
That bunny's gift of charm.
So be ye hearty, hale, and true
And be all of good cheer
As Bun Bun wishes all of you
The happiest New Year!
Black Claw First
Then Two Rounds of Flock
Polished Pet Charms
By the light! Got him!
No, he's off again... wait! Stop!
Phew he's in my arms
It's the most wonderful time, of the year!
Throughout Azeroth and beyond, we spread cheer!
Winter Veil be spreading joy
All for the sake of some some toy
We kill Grumpus for a mount
It makes us Chump'us, a huge amount.
WIth that it's pet week,
It makes us pets weak,
For they know battle is upon us
But those xp bonuses are a big plus!
So I wish you a merry Winter Veil
And hope you found your favourite sale!
