Let Happiness Reign
In the last 5 minutes, just one car has passed.
No buses today, a day off for all drivers at last!
Stanley Park is empty, nobody learning to drive.
And I'm still waiting for the first jogger to arrive!
Where are the dog walkers today, none to see?
Some impatient dogs today, living close to me!
My car and others shiver in the morning frost.
I watch a seagull circling alone, maybe he's lost.
One dog suddenly appears who got his own way!
This is no ordinary Friday, today is Christmas Day!
So from a quiet Highclere House on Arkles Lane.
I wish you a Merry Christmas, let Happiness reign.
