High Tide

Twinkling lights on Christmas Trees,
Angelic bells and holly leaves,
The child expects St. Nicks return,
Cinders in the home hearths burn,
Wreaths adorn the neighbor’s gates,
Again in through the door he’s late,
For buying gifts and treats of Date
Bread and candy canes.

Yes, the Yule Tide seems high,
Save that you are not here…..

Thanks very much.  Kind words on my first post from a Member Emeritus are most flattering.

Thumbs up on this one LR and welcome to the halls of PIP.  I understand you to be an acquaintance of our unsavory rebel Toerag... well just be careful who you hang around with in this place... never know what you might catch.    Hope to see more.

There once was a friend of Toerag
Rebellion was really his bag
He was locally known
As a maverick in poem
He's now in our Passionate quag!!!

.... Welcome, LR... A friend of Toe's is a friend of mine...
