Poetry Today, Songs Tomorrow

The snow glistens on the trees

I stand inside gazing

And waiting with my hot cocoa

It drips of marshmellows

Please sip slowly I told the young ones

As they get in a row

Waiting to sing carols

Tenderly I ask if they will see Santa this year

They gladly respond

And i’m not surprised

 they have

Hopes and dreams

and wishes to complete

by golly, I want to believe!

I tell then not to leave

And they fall asleep

 staring at the chimney all night

winter wonderland

so empirical are my desires

to breathe the freshness that’s offered

chilly cold air

so much is here

out in the snow

it glistens and is blown

to make hills that thrills

the senses

laughing outloud

on the sled

we can touch the sky

with our might

my will says,

“Let’s go faster”

I forget

As I tempt the season to deliver

More snow

That we probably have had enough

But seeing it fall

Encourages me to be out in it all

Sledding, making snow angels

And tossing snowballs here and there

Is nearer to the pleasure

That you can measure by just inches


The snow glistens on the trees

The melody is playing a song that tugs at my memory

For years I’ve imagined this day

When Santa Claus is my very own

He’s wearing a beard and learning a taste

For milk and cookies

I cant wait for tomorrow with faces that cheer

And follow him to his sleigh


Sparkling are the eyes

In this exhilarating season

Full of joy and excitement

Santa is back in town

Ready to storm through the stores

And hear the secrets of the poor

Small secrets

 large secrets

It’s time to think of it

Sooner or later

It will be your turn

To ask Santa Clause for more

The sun is shining on the day

That may

Come with a sleigh

And a suited man in red

That teaches us

To give freely

And lay our burdens down

For just one day


The snow is white and pure

Christmas music caresses the soul

Twinkling stars in the sky

Tremendous measures have taken  place

To make sure the tree stays

Upright

Presents are leaning

And the dreaming began last year

As the decorations were put away

The sleighs, the bulbs,  the lights

Appeared this year no sooner

The children leave out milk

and the silk chocolate cookies

This eve couldn’t be any fancier

For Santa

The house is the brightest on the block

And we know he doesn’t need to knock

The chimney is clean

And I know i’m gleaming

It’s fair to say

we’ve paid with our deeds

And now it’s time to reap

Merry Christmas


Anticipating good fortune

 is never easy

Pleasing the soul

and teasing with what to say

Convicts even the heathens

After receiving presents from the north

Delivered with much more

Than a sleigh and reindeers

On Christmas Eve

The best things In life

Are the ones you cannot hold onto

Never too soon

Sets the eve to new bloom

A fantastic day Christmas is

Matching with my hearts content

Allows me to dream in color

and set to float my passions

as I say Merry Christmas


Anticipating good fortune

 is never easy

Pleasing the soul

and teasing with what to say

Convicts even the heathens

After receiving presents from above

Delivered with much love

On Christmas Eve

The best things In life

Are the ones you can hold onto

Never too soon

Sets the eve to new bloom

A fantastic day Christmas is

Matching with my hearts content

Allows me to dream in color

And look at my brother

With different eyes today

As I say,

merry Christmas
