Fair to middlin'
Underneath the Christmas tree
is a gathering of gifts wrapped by me.
The Granddaughter’s is so big
it had to be bagged.
Each one I lovingly tagged
From: and To: whom
Even for one still in the womb.
My head is dancing with love and joy
thinking of playing with grandson and his new toy.
Each package warmed my heart
as I thought about the wrapping torn apart
and the surprise inside revealed.
Until then my lips are sealed.
I’m full of the Christmas Spirit, happy as I can be.
My Christmas cheer is all wrapped up
underneath the Christmas tree.
