Christmas Joy


Santa baby
Deck the halls
Joy to the world, Fa La La La La
Where is my joy?
I feel so blue.
All the houses are decorated
and the trees all lit up,
I want to crawl under the covers.
Hustle and bustle,
Everyone shopping
Sharing good tidings,
I can't stop crying.
Putting on a smile
for all to see.
If I get it down on paper
It's no longer inside of me,
Screaming to get out.
Silent night,
Holy night,
I pray for relief.
Holy night,

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
