Treasure Island

The Greatest Night Of The Year

The stunning Christmas tree – magnificent memories –
glittering brighter than the twinkling
starry night above – combined beautifully
with the soft glow of the gorgeous ornaments
that gently rotate – hanging off the branches accordingly.
the oven-baked homemade sweet-smelling aroma
of deliciously scrumptious chocolate chip cookies
baked to perfection, and fittingly accompanied
by a nice cold glass of milk is icy as the non-frightful
frozen winter wonderland that already arrived.
The once booming timeless ever-enjoyable
Christmas jingles of the Holiday carols – sublimely adorable –
decreased to a grand delightful
whispering lullaby’s of a loving mother blesses her children.
Now, all children slumbering soundly and are dreamland inhabitants;
each child awaken upon the Eve of Christmas in the wee hours –
awoken by the clattering clip-clopping,
the jingle-jangly sleigh bells holly – miraculous sustenance;
the angelic-like singing of the winds whistling;
hastily tumbling-wumbling down towards the Christmas tree
in untamed desperation of trying to catch the always illusive
Santa Claus. Sadly, the kids unsuccessful again, yet his extensive
joyfully unbound cheerful heart-warming “HO! HO! HO’s! ”
The “Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night! ” wish echoes;
yet, daybreak has come, the children race down,
ripping and tearing the sparkling presents with a big reversed frown
that were left by Saint Nicholas, but all was but an all-to-real
aspiration; the rest of the lives of all children shall be surreal.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
