In Winter glow of festive glee

Bright red berries on a Christmas tree


All packed up and ready to go

Hills and slopes laden with snow


Children amass toboggans and sleighs

Celebrate like it's Christmas day


Snow filled boots, it's time to ski

across the valleys to victory


Amateur hopefuls in line for a show

hope they won't fall like dominoes


A child in Samoa with a bowl of curds and whey

looks on through sombre shades of grey

◄ Success!

2010 Onward ►

Nice thoughts Janet with a bit of reality at the end! My latest poem has the reality in the middle and finishes nice, hope you like it, hope you're okay Jeff X

Thanks Isobel. To tell the truth i was a little worried those last two lines would make people feel guilty about enjoying Christmas.x

Steve - Why not Samoa?
I wrote this after i'd seen a really sad photograph of a child from Samoa at a time when it seemed everyone around was getting excited about festivities. It really touched my heart and i wanted to show the stark differences within the poem.x

What a sad ending Janet - I was getting carried with all the joy of Christmas, waiting for the turkey and roasted chestnuts and then bang - you hit us!
Curds and whey would be a fine dish - I imagine it's a lot worse than that - food for thought indeed. x
