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  precariously hang
how do they stay there, how?
But then I start to look anew
And see the story behind
the love  that it brought 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
Giving cheer to one and all.


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

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

  3. Mine are coming don today - it's going to look very dull!

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