Who Is This?

What child is this

Who came to us

To bring something

For us to eat,

And Christmas gifts galore?

What man is this

Who runs around

In a red suit,

Giving candy canes

And chocolate?

Who is this

Who flies across the sky

With a shiny red nose

To light the way?

And whose heart

Will grow a bit

In this season of love,

This time of giving?

Tick tock

Star candy donkey shepherd wise man

Gifts stockings Christmas tree snowman

Hot cocoa apple cider herbal tea coffee

Glue paper scissors tape pipe cleaners

Wreath with a red bow veal tick tock

Ho ho ho.

Christ mass time is here oh ho ho ho!

Jingle bells are ringing in my ear.

Can you feel my enthusiasm?

Really, I’m happy about it, but

It is stressful with all the expectations

Of joy and merriment.

Carol all your bells and all that, but

Don’t expect me to join in.

Yeah, I know, it’s the season

Of peace and love, giving and getting,

Snow and fireplaces and hot chocolate.

I can’t wait to celebrate and I’m glad

My shopping is all done.

Now, bring on the cookies and candy!

Jingle Bells

Do you feel

The coming tide

Pulling us out

Away from shore?

Do you feel the raindrops

Pelting my head and shoulders?

The candy canes

Are hanging on the

Christmas tree.

The egg nog

Is in the fridge.

The presents are wrapped,

The house is decorated,

And I’m taking less Prozac

So I don’t get manic

Next week.

Soon to come,

Visits with friends

And family.

Parties and church,

Luncheons and dinners.

Cookies and milk,

Next to the fireplace.

I’m saving up

To buy gas.

Looking forward

To celebrating.

Jingle bells!
