How about those holidays!
A festive time of year,
Perhaps because the shortened days
Presuppose an inward gaze,
Yet stir a need for cheer.
How about those holidays?
One knows that they are near,
Listening as the music plays
In stores and squares the songs of praise,
Delightful to the ear.
Although the childhood dream decays,
Yearning that no reason sways
Still holds the season dear.
