Ho Ho Ho!

A flash of red, then he’s gone;

In the distance are Christmas songs.

Holding hands, while kicking snow;

A belly jiggle, “Ho ho ho!”

Children laughing, everywhere;

A turn of lips, a flip of hair.

Bright red and green, white and gold;

The dolly on the shelf is sold.

Grandpa’s pumpkins, Grandma’s pie;

A tree that reaches ceiling-high.

A new love, a whispered prayer;

There is some magic in the air.

A warm hug, a kiss goodnight.

String up the cheerful Christmas lights.

Getting up, at past midnight

To see the house, bathed in moonlight.

See the tree, hear Uncle snore;

Here Christmas is never a bore.
