                 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

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