Very good Harbal.
Perhaps there's also a moral in that for us all.

The table will be dressed
Looking good and really neat
I値l be making roast potatoes
And also pigs in a blanket
The food will be aplenty
Rather like a banquet
There値l be sprouts on our plate
After which we値l be trumping
We値l stuff our belly way too much
And end up like a dumpling
To finish we値l have sweet
Of Christmas pud and custard
By now we値l be feeling stuffed
Our trousers almost busted
After dinner we値l sing carols
Squealing like a crazy cat
We値l pull a Christmas cracker
Then wear a silly hat
We値l tell pathetic jokes
And laugh like cackling hens
We値l be pulling stupid faces
Down the camera lens
The beer and wine will flow
The eggnog値l make an appearance
In time we値l start to slur our words
Slowly becoming incoherent
Then off to bed we値l go
To dream a happy dream
Of waking up tomorrow
For more Christmas pud and Cream!
ゥBev
Brilliant, Queenie!

Christmas Past.

Christmas was a time of joy,
Happy children, girl and boy,
Round the tree, it's lights aglow
In their eyes excitements show.
Sadly years went by so fast
They have grown, their childhoods past
Maybe Grandchildren some day will stay,
As my own on a Christmas day
Special memories will never fade away.


Sadly it wasn't to be, I never got Grandkids.
That was lovely, Tiffany, did it win? I have never tried an acrostic.

Re: Your Christmas poems

Ding dong! Deck the halls with holly,
It’s December– rush, rush rush!
Struggle with your Tesco trolley -
Don’t you just adore the crush?

We three kings, the dog, the baby,
Cram them all into the car,
If I hurry – perhaps, maybe
I’ll find time to hang that star.

Silent night, holy night,
Holy smoke! The cards, the cards ..
What to write -, “best wishes? Love?”
Or “yours, exhausted” - just “regards?”

Oh, little shop of trinkets,
How much we spend with thee,
The knick knacks never needed,
Mislaid, beneath the tree.

Lord, help us to remember,
To rein in all our vanity,
To step back from the rat race and
Keep sight of our humanity.

Take a breath – make time to wonder,
See the candle’s flickering taper,
And finally, dear readers, ponder …..

Where the hell’s that wrapping paper?

Re: Your Christmas poems

Just a one shot!

Left the Table,
A little tight,
The Bedroom Stairs
Are to the right.

But as I climb.
There is a lovely sight
With the dark sky
and the darkest night.

And through the glass
Out in the night,
A million stars
Which shine so bright.

My Mum once said,
And she was right
That each star there
When coloured white

Was once a friend
Some knew by sight
Now in their heaven
As is their right.

Remember them
With love, not spite,
And wish them all
A fond good night.
