Christmas Time For You and Me.

 
Christmas time for you and me
not very different I’m sure you’ll see,
my favourites here complete each year
this yuletide picture of fun and cheer…
 
Christmas bright with candle lights,
good friends to share with you,
log fires that crackle burning bright
to warm your toes on Xmas nights.
Scented smells of cinnamon
sweet mulled wine to sip, as
carols sung of partridges and turtle doves
while crystals fall as snowflakes
twinkle gently from heaven above.
To settle on gleeful faces, catching
warm lashes as paces quicken to
peep in pretty windows dressed to share,
a few of these favourite things…
 
Jenny’s warm crisp mince pies
adds a sparkle to your eyes,
quince jelly and all those yummy things,
brandy butter and children’s grins.
The snap of festive crackers pop,
corny mottos and paper hats.
Laughing faces, silly chatter,
sweet smell of oranges, chestnuts too
oh to share them all  with you…
 
That special Robin who came and sat
near mistletoe for that special kiss,
we hang in bunches not to miss!
The wonder of the child’s eyes
as underneath the tree is spied
coloured ribbon, box entice
if you’ve been good, if you’ve been nice?
Family…friends…laughter…fun…
“Merry Christmas” special ones.
 
Christmas time no different you see
Just as long as you’re here with me….

Susie I love your photo and your beautiful poem! Is this the fireplace in your home? It is absolutely gorgeous and so inviting. I’m sure all of us want to just head on over for a cup of tea! May your holidays be merry and bright, and your Christmas white! Love to you!

Thank you Linda – I am glad you like my little Christmas ditty. No this is not my home but the beautiful cottage of a very dear friend. Wishing you a wonderful festive season sharing it with those you love – what could be better! Happy Christmas Linda and Ernie X
