The Eleventh Day

4th Jan 2018

Joining the six sentence challenge today x


celebrating Christmas.



The Eleventh Day

The eleventh day of Christmas
I look at the sad limp tree
And wonder should I take it out
now,- convenient for me
Lights off, branches droop 
Reach to the floor now
decorations hang precariously
how do they stay there, how?
But then I start to look anew
And see the love behind
the beauty that it gave us
And so I change my mind
I'll leave it for a few more days
till the kings have come to call
I'll put the lights on later too
To give cheer to one and all.

Very nice. I am no good at poetry and a little jealous.

The house always looks so dreary after the holiday decorations come down. :-(

Nice. I have known people to leave the tree up through Fourth of July....
