Here is a song for tomorrow To fill you with great hope; To chase away all sorrow; To strengthen and build you up. And if you need to borrow Some peace and joy from me, Liberally choose to share so We all sing this melody. Join in this song for tomorrow With voices high andContinue reading “A SONG FOR TOMORROW”

THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
Twas the night before Christmas And all through the house The animals were talking, Except for the mouse. She was quiet, you see, Because she knew that If she didn’t stay hidden, She’d be food for the cat! “I would like toys,” said the dog, And a nice, new bed.” “Plenty of catnip for me,Continue reading “THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS”
Soft, white fairies dance and spin; Never hesitating On their way to the ground Where a blanket spreads far and wide; Fresh and cold, Laid out so evenly And bright with crystal jewels; Known for its beauty and delight; Enveloping happy children as they play in it; Snowmen and angels left behind as evidence.
HOLIDAY SURVIVAL KIT
For survival this season, Start with plenty of cheer. Add a little peace And things you hold dear. Identify the reason You like holidays so. Baking, gifts and songs; Love from those you know. Then mix them all together, Shaking them very well. Add some memories And stories to tell. Perhaps some frosty weather MaybeContinue reading “HOLIDAY SURVIVAL KIT”
I sing in the local community choir. Before our concert on Sunday Afternoon, our director read us this: “To get together is a start; To keep together is progress; To work together is success.” (Henry Ford) I say, that’s well said.
Here is my idea of winter fashion: jeans or a long skirt over as many layers of tights and leggings as I can put on; At least three layers on top, probably with a nice, long, warm sweater as the outer garment; Boots and a long parka; Hat and gloves if needed. Where I live,Continue reading “WINTER FASHION”
WHO HAS THE REDDEST NOSE HERE?
I couldn’t help myself; here is another crunched up carol: Who has the reddest nose here, Blowing it because of a cold? Know if we hear you sneezing, Our breath we will hold. All of the other symptoms Make us nervous till we shake; Get out the pharmaceuticals; We’ll decide what we should take.Continue reading “WHO HAS THE REDDEST NOSE HERE?”
DECK THE HALLS
Here’s another crunched up Christmas carol: Deck the halls with lots of plastic. Clink a clink a clink a beep beep beep; Artificial looks fantastic! Clink a clink a clink beep beep beep; Get it in the bargain basement; Clink a clink clink a clink beep beep beep; Don’t complain if it is bent. ClinkContinue reading “DECK THE HALLS”
BLOCKING IN A WINTER WONDERLAND
You’ve heard of “Fractured Fairy Tales,” well, these are Crunched up Christmas carols! Don’t ask me why I’m having so much fun with them; probably my pun-ish nature. Enjoy: Phone bells ring; Are you listening? Telemarketting; Soliciting; We’re on the “No Call List”, Shaking our fist; Blocking in a winter wonderland. Spam again; HowContinue reading “BLOCKING IN A WINTER WONDERLAND”
OH CHRISTMAS TREE
So, here’s a more modern, possibly slightly cynical version of a popular Christmas song: Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree, You’re higher priced than ever. Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree, Afford you I can never. Your greenery fills the parking lot In hopes that soon you will be bought; Oh Christmas tree, Oh ChristmasContinue reading “OH CHRISTMAS TREE”
