XMAS

By 12th December 2007December 9th, 2019No Comments

December days are here again,

Slides in the playground covered with snow,
Snowball fights, sucking icicles,
Gathering logs for the Yuletide fire,
Snowflakes falling from a heavy sky,
Upstairs windows frosted inside and out,
Snuggling down on Xmas Eve pretending to sleep!
Empty pillowcases at the end of the bed;
waiting for Santa!
Sledges and wellies stand by the door,
All is ready for Xmas day.

Memories of yesterday are still here;
recaptured in frames on the mantle piece.
