Our Christmas - Poem by Stephen Holland

Our Christmas

Christmas came early for you and for me
Christmas with no gifts to open
Christmas without any yuletide tree
Christmas with words of love spoken
Christmas was walking to York hand in hand
Christmas in awe at the Minster
Christmas togetherness was just what we planned
Christmas was chaffed legs and blisters

Christmas was cups of tea served early morn
Christmas was being together
Christmas was loving from dusk until dawn
Christmas remembered forever
Christmas was driving through floods for the view
Christmas ‘our planning’ was starting
Christmas our Christmas meant so much to me
Christmas our bitter sweet parting

    Indeed, your Christmas, is our Christmas too. Your conception of christmas in the second stanza seems to be any special treatment offered to us by people who love us or an encounter with an extraordinary scene of nature that leaves a lasting impression on our memories. I agree with you as everyday, christmas is enjoyed whenever there is a sense of love and astonishment. This is a wonderful poem and will become one of my Christmas poems.

    Well done Stephen.
