Merry Christmas, poetry lovers!

December 18, 2019

What will Father Christmas bring?

A puzzle of jigsaws in rattly boxes,
A cuddle of bedsocks as furry as foxes,
A glitter of necklaces, bracelets and rings,
A skitter of games till your console grows wings?

A gobble of chocolates and biscuits and sweets,
A thunder of drums with electrified beats,
A rainbow of crayons — a lifetime’s supplies,
A floorshow of clothes that aren’t quite the right size?

Whatever he brings me I still find it shocking
That so little fits in my biggestmost stocking.

May Christmas bring all of us peace and poetry!
