Houses trimmed in bright twinkling lights;
like stars that shine on crisp winter nights.
Star topped trees, with bulbs and glitter;
Young hearts anxious;mind’s a twitter.
Mantles draped in fir garlands green.
Bright red bows, complete the scene.
Stockings with embroidered names;
above the fireplace; of dancing flames.
Ribbons and bows; on wrappings tied;
snowflakes falling on ground outside.
Yule time carols both played and sung;
Couples kiss under the mistletoe hung.
Candy canes, fruit; hazel nuts galore;
Poinsettia’s in pots sitting by the door.
Smell of fresh baked cookies fill the air;
Plating some up for Santa to share.
Then children sleep tight in their beds;
Dreams of toys dance in their heads.
In morning they rise; race down to the tree;
surprises they find; shouting out in glee
Santa has been there; he heard everyone’s wish;
eating the cookies carefully placed in the dish.
Santa did well pleasing the kids on this day;
Delivering toys with his reindeer and sleigh.
From my family to yours I wish you happiness and cheer;
to all my friends at booksie, whom I hold special and dear.
This little poem my present to you, I hope it brings smiles;
My way of saying thank you to friends across many miles!
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL MY BOOKSIE FRIENDS!
