A poem about a typical Christmas gathering - Season's Greetings!
|Eggnog, Santas on every corner, and a yuletide
Home front getting set for friends and family
To share in the most ingratiating warmth
And time-honored festivities.
A knock on the door, then happy relatives
Usher in their daintily clad, playful children;
Then, more familiar faces with clusters
Of gifts and some tasteful, housewarming embellishments.
A friendly, joyous atmosphere overflowing
With engaging conversations
And wondrous chit-chat
Surround the lovely and decorated home,
A home of holiday greetings, inviting celebrations,
And happy times for all.
