A December Wish

Rating: 3.3
You hear the sound of carols from afar.
Bright bulbs and tinsel, cinnamon and cloves.
Beyond a hill of snow you see a star.

Here you can look at stacks of Christmas trees,
buy nuts and raisins, fruit from nearby groves,
cards inscribed in gold: “joy, love and peace.”

And you can eat kielbasa from a spit
as fat drips sizzling in makeshift stoves
and zlotys are exchanged and butts are lit.

this is a nice poem with vivid descriptions all set in specific place and, being a cold wimp, i relate to the charm of the scene that makes us forget the cold that pierces our gloves (which in russia has got be worse than here in the high desert where i live) . -gk
