Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas
crunching over
snow sparkling
red, green and gold
from tree lights
shining through
frosted windows

Merry Christmas
stomping boots on
red and green welcome mat
brushing off our coats
shaking out hats and scarves
before coming inside

Merry Christmas
more snow crunching
bringing multiple presents
to add to the overflowing
sea of gifts
under The Tree

Merry Christmas
you look beautiful, Sis
what’s cooking
smells wonderful
is it your famous lasagna
yes, we brought the wine

Merry Christmas
red tablecloth and candles
fine china and crystal
napkins and silverware
all in proper position, ready
for a perfect meal

Merry Christmas
heads bow, eyes close, voices clear
Bless us, oh Lord . . . Amen
and Mom’s, Dear Lord, bless my
family and keep them safe. Amen.
silent moment, happy together

Merry Christmas
we toast, Merry Christmas,
Buono Natale, Feliz Navidad,
cheers, salud, toast to the
hostess, toast to the parents.
Food’s getting cold. Let’s eat.
