Merry Christmas

Early to bed
Anticipate the dawn
No thoughts of our Saviour
Or the day he was born

Tossing and turning
No sleep to be had
Excitement is growing
Driving me mad

Peer through the curtains
Searching the sky
Hoping perchance
To see him fly by

Squeals of delight
He surely has been
Little sis impatient
To share what she's seen

Skip through the kitchen
Crumbs left on his plate
Gifts galore surprise me
Santa was definitely worth the wait



I'm taking a blogging break while I celebrate the holidays. Have a wonderful time, stay safe and I will see you again in the New Year.

Love KB

As "Christmas approached, the town became gorgeous".
Christmas song flows, and a roadside tree is displayed with gorgeous neon.
I am excited just to walk the town. "

Your poem describes the madness of my childhood, was awake to open our gifts, my brother and I. Before packing off to my Oma and Opa's place (2 hour drive away), where 18 of my 24 cousins will be awaiting their gifts from Oma and Opa. Not to mention, my aunts, uncles and cousins' wives/girlfriends and great grandchildren. How times have changed.

Ah! The magic of Christmas - and yet missing its true meaning. Love this ditty!

brudberg said...

So sweet.... and part of me wishes that I once had believed in Santa... but part of me is glad that I wasn't lead to believe and could love the gift being given by a giver.

I love this poem. It definitely captures the excitement of waiting for Santa Claus. I remember too how hard it was to sleep on December 24. I love all of the details you included in this happy recollection! I hope you have a merry Christmas THIS year too!
