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.
