Some Impromptu Christmas Poetry

24 Dec

With novels and schoolwork

To weigh on my mind

The right Christmas spirit

Can be hard to find

But now that it’s evening and

The church services are ending

Here in my home

My spirit starts mending

As choirs sing “Silent night, holy night”

Through the radio

Life indoors and out

Begins to quietly slow

Sipping hot chocolate in front of the fire

Reading stories by Dickens

Singing songs of jete-ing nobles

And female French chickens

Worldy things loom less large

All that matters here is our family and friends

We’re all in this together

Have each other’s backs till the end

Think of all the people out there

And go now, spread some of that holiday cheer

If you make a donation

Marley’s Ghost won’t appear

Deck the halls and sing a song

After all, Christmas won’t be here very long.
