Holiday Greetings

I hope all of you have a wonderful safe holiday season, no matter your beliefs, and look forward to blogging with you again in January, 2011.

I will leave you with a recycled poem I wrote years ago. I deleted some verses due to their repetitiveness.


Holiday Season by D J Cornwell

There are three hundred and sixty days
We can put our mind to finding ways
Of locating presents and gifts
For loved ones, friends, near and missed.

Why is it most use the last moment
To hustle, rush and generally torment,
Try to locate and purchase the most
Useless object for someone who’s close?

It’s a frenzy of driving fast
Meeting impossible timeframes, leaving last
And rushing each friend visited
So the routine can be repeated.

Boxing Day is to catch up on sleep
But mostly just lying in a heap
Wondering why they went into debt
So they could stay with the fashion set.

Wouldn’t it be better to take the whole year
To visit with friends both near and dear
To find out what they want the most
And gift freely without the need to boast?

Have a wonderful holiday. 🙂
