Christmas Glee - Poem by Paul Moosberg

I’ve got a jingle in my jangle here at Christmas
As my smile runs for miles round to see
I’ve got a jingle in my jangle here at Christmas
As I’m running round to show my Christmas glee

Throw on the tinsel, put up the lights
Get out the baubles, sparkling bright
Put down the tree skirt, laid out just right
Memories of past time, shining delight

Get out the dishes, with Christmas bows
Put up the stockings, laid out in rows
Listen to carols, watch Christmas shows
Sit by the fire, watch as it glows

Put down the door mat, throw up the wreath
Plan out the colors, Christmas motif
Get out the garland, show your belief
Santa is coming, what a relief

I’ve got a jingle in my jangle here at Christmas
As my smile runs for miles round to see
I’ve got a jingle in my jangle here at Christmas
As I’m running round to show my Christmas glee

Visit the family, hugs all around
Pictures and stories, feast for a crown
Inside our hearts lay, spirit profound
Turn up the music, of Christmas sounds

Put on a sweater, with Christmas cheer
Pictures with Santa, as he comes here
Shopping for gifts that, people revere
Singing with jolly, for all to hear

Go out and buy the, nicest presents
Get up the spirit, attend events
Receive some gifts and, guess their contents
Christmas is here with, love to dispense

I’ve got a jingle in my jangle here at Christmas
As my smile runs for miles round to see
I’ve got a jingle in my jangle here at Christmas
As I’m running round to show my Christmas glee
As I’m running round to show my Christmas glee

    Very nice! Bravo! .
    Third stanza needs the apostrophe removed in carols.
    This is quite original as it injects with such mischievous surprise, humour and joy. It is a very uplifting poem, sure to create enthusiasm and anticipation of a great time.
