Whisper


There’s a whisper under my bed,
Right beneath where I lay my head,
It talks to me as I sleep,
And whispers things when I wake.
***
There’s a whisper silent and still,
Right now talking within my skull,
It gives me ideas to write,
And helps me share for you to read.
***
There’s a whisper inside of me,
Right where no one can see,
It speaks with my tongue,
And writes for me in my hand.
***
There’s a whisper on this page,
Right in these lines I’ve laid,
It speaks to you,
And was placed by me.

25. Christmas Thanks


Thank you all,
For another year,
Of reading my attempt,
To spread Christmas cheer,
***
The next week,
Will be new year,
So please keep reading,
The last countdown here.
***
All that’s left,
Is for me to say,
Merry Christmas to you,
Happy New Year on the way.

22. Cold of Snow


The ground turns hard,
The sky turns grey,
The world becomes cold,
As we near the end of the day.
***
The wind begins to howl,
The night begins to clear,
Giving way to the white,
Of Christmas Cheer.
***
The children are out playing,
On the temporary play turf,
Making the most of it,
Before it goes for another year.

18. Present For You


Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
There’s something under the tree,
Just for you.
***
Tulips are black,
Pansies are blue,
Christmas is nothing,
When I’m not with you.

14. Monkey Day


Hayhay todays a good day,
Welcome to the day,
Where monkey business is ok,
December the 14th,
Is Monkey Day.
***
get out of the house,
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.

12. Christmas Round The World


The Aussies have their barbecues,
The Eskimos build their igloos,
The Scots grab their sleds,
And the bears go to bed.
***
Each corner of the earth,
Has it’s own ways to go,
Whether that’s sunny,
Or temperatures subzero.
***
One thing we all share,
Is spreading cheer,
And sharing what we have,
With those who do not.

10. That’s A Wrap


Pompoms and ribbons and bows and tape,
The things you need to make the shape,
Wrap the box in shiny paper,
Tie it shut with a little taper,
Tape it down and put it away,
To be ripped open another day.
