A Christmas Poem

At Christmas little children sing and merry bells jingle,
The cold winter air makes our hands and faces tingle
And happy families go to church and cheerily they mingle
And the whole business is unbelievably dreadful, if you're single.

Tim,
Ho ho! Beautiful. And dreadful even if you're not!

May the force be with you.
Janet

When Wendy gave me Serious Concerns, rather than have her sign the frontispiece, I had her sign this page!

Yes, I read it and found many good poems in it, though I am still more fond of her first two.
