Have a drink for today,
Shed a memory for yesterday,
Hold a thought for tomorrow.
Don’t worry about today
Or dwell on the past,
And don’t panic about the future.
We say goodbye to 2019,
Hello to a new decade,
And welcome to 2020.
Grab your pen and thinking cap, Sit down and look for improvement, And write this years resolutions, Just so we can all break them in January. *** Or take the thing one step further, And don’t write resolutions at all, Just aim for daily improvement, And work to improve the world for all.
In the boring mid point, Between Christmas and new year, There is little on TV, And no more cold beer. *** Nothing exciting happens, Within these short few days, Offices are sat closed, And have all played.
With a twist of creativity, Turkey can become a curry Whether a masala or vindaloo, There is a curry there for you. *** Strips of Christmas turkey, With a curry sauce of choice, Some rice on the side, And a pudding for the night.
Quick grab your coat, We don’t want to miss the deals, We need to get to town, And spend money on those “Steals”. *** The kids have Christmas money, Dad wants a new TV, Mum wants a quiet life, So lets go hit the high street. *** Wrap up warm and snug, Don’t catch a winter bug, Make your list and check it twice, You want to buy something nice.
Now that the Turkey is done,
And the rum is run,
And Christmas draws to a close.
Thoughts turn to the year,
That the close is so near,
And the journey that is to come.
The end of a decade,
The start of a new one,
The possibilities that are to come.
So have another glass,
And toast to the past,
And watch the rest of the year pass.
As you sit warm,
In your PJs,
Eyeing up your presents.
Have a happy Christmas,
And spread the love,
At this time of sharing.
We all love a good gift,
Or hidden surprise,
And treat under the tree.
So celebrate everyone,
Show your heart,
And hug your family.
Merry Christmas to you,
From the PeskyPoet.
There are traditions to uphold, And new ones to make, A Christmas tea to be had, And cakes to be baked, Movies to watch, And board games to be played, And that one tradition, We all insist has just been made. *** Bit after the excitement, It’s time to sleep, Before he sees you, When he creeps, And drops down the chimney, With sooty foot, To leave the presents, Where the tree is stood. *** Sleep well in the thought, That Santa will come, His gifts will bring joy, To everyone, And make sure to leave, One thing out for he, A drink of milk or maybe some brandy.
Yuletide wishes to all of you, May the Yuletide bring something new. Keep the Yule log burning in the harth, And a pound of love in your heart. Let all and sunder know you care, And that you will always be there. So happy Yuletide to you and yours, Wrap up warm and don’t let christmas pass in a blur.
At this time of darkness, Where the nights feel never ending, And the world feels broken, We can often forget our humanity. *** We try and push the dark, Into a space in the back of our minds, And keep thoughts of wars, Suffering and pain for the new year. *** So we light the last candle, And bring to our minds forefront, The thoughts of peace, And what part we play in the world.
Comes over us,
Making the world dark.
But tomorrow will be light,
And shorter will be the night,
bringing back the warmth.
Although today is dark,
Look to tomorrow,
As the start of a brighter time.
There’s one week to go, Until the big day, And in that time, There is a lot to do. *** The schools must finish, With hyper kids, Leaving for the holidays, And dreaming of their presents. *** And don’t Forget, That last little bit, Of wrapping to do, For under the tree. *** That and the turkey, You need to get, From the store, That is getting hectic. *** But in that time, Remember to enjoy, Some of the cheer, And maybe some wine.
Meet Pesky the Poetry Bear… Isn’t he swell? You can grab one for yourself, From here as well. *** 100 must go, And find a new home, So grab yours quick, Before they are gone. *** Then when they arrive, Remember to send, A quick hello, From his home in the end.
Only 98 Left! PS: This is the last chance for ordering for Christmas delivery.
It’s the season of Joy, Throughout the world, Today we light, The pink candle, Think about joy, The shepherd of mankind. *** But while there is joy, Spend a thought, For the less unfortunate, Who may not be joyous, And may be under, A dark cloud. *** Outstretch your hand, And gift some joy, If you can make, Just one person smile, You can claim success, Today and always.
My favourite part of this time of year, Is sitting here with a beer, Waiting patiently for you here, To meet me under the white berries there. *** Below the mistletoe up there, I’ll wait to share a kiss right here, Just sitting here with my beer, To love you at this time of year.
Let’s show some love, This Christmas time, To all things simian. *** Out cousins here, On this planet green, On the life tree. *** Thank you Millikin & Sorrow, For this day to think, About our furry brothers.
Whether it’s the Muppets or Jack Skellington, Or the Hog Father followed by Scrooge, Or some holiday tale of the days that were good. *** Christmas movies fill the airwaves, Bringing joy and Christmas excitement, To adults and children both young and old. *** Grab the TV guide from the pile, Give a quick flip through the file, Find a movie to watch while, You countdown to Christmas day.
