CHRISTMAS

snow flakes and flurries
blizzards and storms
dark gales of winter
nipping noses and cheeks
hurrying home
on frozen feet
and empty stomachs
smoking chimneys
in the approaching distance
through feet of cold whiteness
wading plowing
and frozen tears
and red noses
and rosy blotchy cheeks

home
front door opened
and closed
and locked behind
fire in its place
embers cinders
cakes on the table
hot and spicy wine
in glasses galore
mitts and wooly hats hung
to dry
ice melting at the knees
in cornucopia stockings
chocolates and tangerines
biscuits
the smell of leftover
meat and pies

home
mistletoe and holly
bed duvet and eiderdown
sleep
sweet dreams
