A little poem for the Holidays!...
Oh! To be six again, wide-eyed and full of fun!
When Christmas was an explosive occasion for one!
The world revolved around me in glitter and stars
Dazzling gifts and goodies, stories from afar.
The morning was spent ripping at paper and bows
Amidst laughter and giggles and plenty of rows,
Fighting over toys, but it was all just in fun.
Quiet came at last, when the presents were done.
Then off to church on a snowy winter morn
To pay tribute to the holy child this day born.
The stable was there, draped in the aroma of pine.
Oh! That smell! So much a part of Christmastime!
The people were all gathered, heads bowed to pray
But the children all twinkled inside on this day.
Home soon to cinnamon and sugar, color and toys,
It's Christmastime! Magic time for girls and for boys.
