‘Tis the season:
Christmas cheers,
Jingle Bells,
Tinsel,
Mistletoe,
Rudolf and
Santa’s other
Reindeers.

Children’s wishes,
Santa’s letters,
Singing carols,
Christmas trees,
Angels, and
Anticipation
Of wonder and
Of happiness.

Gatherings.
Family and
Friends celebrate
A birth and the
Allure of
New beginnings
In the New Year.

Oodles of treats.
Kiddies playing
Guessing games
Of what’s hidden
Within the
Wrapping paper.
Eggnog, pudding,
Cakes, crackers,
Opening presents,
And much laughter.

‘Tis the season:
Spreading goodwill
To one and all.
So, spare a thought
For the lonely
And those on their own:
And sprinkle some of
Your good cheer
On them as well!

Wishing one and all
A safe and happy
Festive Season!
