A little rhyme for Christmastime

Written by yours truly for you only,


Though you’ve surely heard such verses oft

I think I’ll air them once again

For who could tire of hearing love

And Christmas greeting from a friend?


May the winter night, though drafty cold

Make more the home fires, warm and bright

May your icy fingers ache in bliss

Held to their friendly, thawing light



May your family gather round, but more

Important be your love than blood

May you call to mind the bliss of peace

And lay to rest all precious grudge


May you see a child, in home or street

Who has not lost the season’s joy

May his smile remind that any man

In spirit can be still a boy


May you drink concoctions hot and sweet

That spread to every tip and toe

May the swirl of spoons add love and cheer

Though stirring hands be just your own


May your table hold such yuletide treats

As pales your daily fare beside

May you think the while of brothers who

Still want for bread to feed a child


May you have the joy of giving gifts

Long sought but not anticipated

May their usefulness outlast the time

Of bows and trees and wrapping paper


May you not forget another eve

Of journey, trials, and painful birth

Unlike our festive Christmas-ing

And wonder how He counts our worth.



merry christmas, my lovely readers
