Christmas Past

Christmas Past
Christmas was
Mild. Winter’s dawn.
The day was
Calm. As still as the Holly in ivy torn.
This was the day
Announced. That dinner was with cranberry sauce, specially made for
A family occasion
Unannounced. When friends gather at noon
On the day that came
Pre announced. Songs sung in voices joined
Throughout the day
Echoing laughter. More brussel sprouts
Double servings.
Into the evening
Puddings as afters. Monopoly, next to jam roly poly.
On a plate with custard or ice cream.
Next to the Holly and the Ivy.
