Merry Christmas!

There’s always something

last minute to do,

like dashing downtown

only to stand in a queue.

Or tying up packages

with bells and some bows,

then forget what it was

we had wrapped–oh no!

The sound of sweet carols

fill the night air,

but try as we might,

our minds are elsewhere.

There are cookies to bake

and eggnog to buy,

and we haven’t a clue

what we put in the pie.

But there is a reason

our homes are bedecked,

so sit down and relax

and take time to reflect.

May you and your loved ones

have joy, love, and peace,

and in the new year

may blessings not cease.
