2016 Christmas Countdown 18 : Christmas To Me


There are the Christmas tunes,
There is a turkey in the oven,
There’s a smile on the faces,
A laugh coming from the table,
There is the lights on the tree,
And lets not forget the company,
This is what Christmas means to me.

***
People all around the world feel as one,
All link arms together and thank everyone,
Remember the hardships of the past,
And the hardships to come,
But not focus of the hard times,
But look forward to the fun,
This is what I dream Christmas to be.

2016 Christmas Countdown 17 : Christmas Plans


There are snowmen,
With snow balls,
Rudolf calls,
And we deck the halls.
***
We shake hands,
Make Christmas Plans,
Sing Psalms,
And meet our grans,
***
While I write poetry,
We sing happily,
Smile profusely,
Living our Christmas plans.

2016 Christmas Countdown 16 : Santa Claus


Santa Claus even if not here,
Brings joy to kids,
Every Year,
***
With his reindeer and sled,
And shiny bald head,
He comes out each year,
***
In supermarkets and stalls,
And even school halls,
His sits and waits this year,
***
He’ll soon be on his way,
After stalking his sleigh,
And Christmas Eve is here.

2016 Christmas Countdown 15 : Ten Days To Go


Ten days to go,
And by now you all know,
Christmas is coming close,
And so is the snow,
In comes the cold,
Out comes the coal,
As the cold takes its toll.
***
Thermoses are filled,
Drinks are no longer chilled,
And the garden no longer has a rose,
But we wait in delight,
For that one starry night,
With only ten days to go.

Hayhay todays a good day,
Welcome to the day,
Where monkey business is ok,

And play in the snow,
Or if there is none,
Just have some fun,
For today is the one day a year,
It ok to make light and merry,
And be a little monkey.

Hats and scarfs out for a while,
The new year feels closer,
