Christmas Poetry Competition 2004
Christmas Cheer by Dr Anthea
Chattering Christmas full of cheer
Chanting rhymes we wish to hear.
And chocolates many
Wrappings empty far and near
Shredded papers laying tatterd
Cards on the floor all scattered.
Toys like racecars and a teddybear,
That new ragdoll with woollen hair.
A button nose and eyes so bright
When you couldn't sleep through the night
Running, skipping, wish for snow
If it shall fall I do not know.
Wanting ever a friendly smile
Or from the family to be a mile
When granny sings as merry as can be
The empty sherry reminding me.
Next year should not be the same
This festive sprit is to blame.
But when the turky is now done
And you watch the setting sun
You remember why it is
That you got into such a tizz
Christmas time is well and good -
Comes once a year as it should!
