A Christmas Poem

Christmas time you’re here again and this year I’ll enjoy you with an old friend

I’ll welcome the buzz of Christmas morning even if Jack Frost doesn’t appear and the rain is still pouring

Stockings hung and filled to the brim, us Brits can stay festive even when the weathers grim

Tinsel decks the halls and Christmas cards hang on string

Lights twinkle inside and out, as colours of the rainbow illuminate the house

Santa waves out from the kitchen window and the cooker hood light shines bright on the festive treats below

Cinnamon and ginger waft through each room

Offering us soulful warmth, a hug from home, a festive saloon

Cold walks wrapped up in bulky layers, with the dogs running in and out the hedgerow

Not forgetting to stop at the pub to cheers a tipple and kiss beneath the mistletoe

Tearing yourself away when the taps run dry and you’ve reached the bottom of the barrel

Then merrily skipping home to watch The Muppets Christmas Carol

Filled with the wonders of a glazed banquet, pushing your limits for the gingerbread house

When the days all done curling up on the sofa and napping like a little dormouse

Cheers-ing our loved ones, old and new

Reminiscing the last year and welcoming twenty twenty-two

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Years to you
