A Typical Kiwi Christmas...(wooo...bring it on...smiles)


Summer is finally here
As we get ready for
Our Christmas cheer

White sands
Bright sun
Blue seas
Ah a typical Kiwi Christmas day

Burning barbies in the sun
Sizzling meat marinated over night

Pulling out our picnic treats
Drooling over our Christmas brunch

Families gathering for Christmas cheer
Oh what a wonderful way
To spend on Christmas day

Watching the kids
Having fun in the sun

Volley and cricket
And bulrush and touch

Just relaxing enjoying the day
Family opening presents
With glee Christmas to me
Is fun in the sun?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Bulrush is a typical kiwi game…ya line up on one side of the field, then chose one person to stay in the middle of the field that one person has to bring down who ever they chose from the sideline, if that one person gets pass the appointed person in the middle then everyone rush's as the word BULRUSH is screamed by all and the middle person tackles each one that goes by once down those that have been tackled must help the middle person bring down the rest…it keeps going like that till there is the one person left on the sideline.

Touch is another game…like rugby only instead of tackling you touch the person then pass the ball on to the next player…the minute you get touched by the opposing team you have to give the ball to the other side.

Barbie to us means a BBQ… smiles

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

Kneel down, fair Love, and fill thyself with tears,
Girdle thyself with sighing for a girth
Upon the sides of mirth,
Cover thy lips and eyelids, let thine ears
