                 In the following example by William Burford, the poem is about a Christmas tree; therefore, the author wrote it in the shape of a Christmas tree.

A Christmas Tree

If you are
A love Compassionate,
You will walk with us this year.
We face a glacial distance, who are her
At your feet.
