'On Christmas Poem by Bernard Snyder

'On Christmas

Rating: 4.8


I'm going to purchase the finest bottle of wine
then prepare a gourmet dinner
have the table elegantly set
with two candles in the center,
I will have rose petals throughout the hall way
scented candles all along the stairs
a couple of logs burning in the fireplace
just in case my queen appears,
if I should happen to be so lucky
and she emerges from one of my dreams
I'm going to take her by the hand
then sing about what this means,
but if this Christmas is like all the others
where she still isn't crossed off from my wish list
I'm going to wine and dine the night away
and pray she shows up after Christmas.

I, too, have prepared a beautiful Christmas Dream, only to think Santa may not have received the letter on time. Maybe your Queen is travelling the same train as my Prince. I loved this poem Ten!
