It’s the 25th and all through the house,
There’s gratitude brewing—no fire to dowse!
My stocking hangs from the mantle with care,
Which means one foot is still going bare.
The sun peeking through a few drops of rain,
Makes hope for snowflakes somewhat in vane.
But the luscious smells of food on the air,
Carry great expectations for holiday fare.
Wherever you are and whatever you do,
I’m sending good thoughts to be with you.
Take time to add to your memory’s store,
With hugs and fun and laughter galore.
Remember that when all's said and done,
What really counts are the hearts you’ve won.
So from my brain and each little cell,
I wish you a very Happy Noel.
