Christmas Light


On a cold winter night, I snuggled under my blanket tight
Drifting into a lovely dream, when suddenly I heard the doorbell scream
I ignored the sound n snuggled tighter, hoping Santa would come on a day brighter
Then it struck me, it was x-mas eve, n may be Santa came to take a sneak peek
Excited I pushed my blanket aside, rushed to open the door wide
To my agony no one was there, it seemed the kids had a prank to spare
Sad and dull I walked back to my room, in a lull
But I pushed it aside, poured a large glass of milk n baked cookies fresh
It was x-mas eve, n I wasn’t going to lie like a dead beat
I got out in the chilly snow to get a little tree of my own
I got stars n bells with silver hue, n elves with pointy shoes
Placed my tree high n hung up my sock dry
Said a nice prayer, wished on a star bright, hoping Santa will visit me that night
With that hope, I snuggled again tight, looking forward for a bright Christmas light.

    'Moral Crime'
    What you did with my heart
    Only used it for a flirt
    I thought
    You will feel my feelings
    Of sincere love
    And will be with me
    Even in the deserted time
    But you proved to be

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
