Liliana  Negoi and I complete strangers to all intents wrote this Yuletide nostalgic poem just after we cooperated on some haiku recently it  was a pleasure to cooperate again.


Yuletide Remembrance

 

At Christmas in our land in Europe
There was a time when the snow lay deep
But winters are warmer now with no snow
Yet children still hang stockings for Santa Claus

There was a time when the snow lay deep
Covering with its white blanket together
the dead yellow leafs of autumn and the green dreams of spring...
maybe that whiteness made Christmas more colourful

But winters are warmer now with no snow
And the traditional winter snow man is not seen
Children no longer sledge with reddened cheeks
Then warm themslves before yule tide fires

Yet children still hang stockings for Santa Claus
because, in their innocence, Christmas is still white and pure,
and Santa doesn't need the snow to ride his sledge,
when he flies his reindeers in the sky to bring them gifts...

Cosy text! Pretty much like sitting by the fire, talking memories with a good old friend (or a good new friend!)

Oh yes, Christmas was beautiful back then. In fact, in our childhood Christmas memories, every Christmas was perfect. All had snow, (though in reality only a few did). All brought the perfect gift (though often it didn't fit or was the wrong color or broke after one or two uses). And everyone was happy (though many were infact tired, grumpy or just sad). What's best about Chrismas is our edited versions. And I will continue to edit for the rest of my days, so I can look forward to the next Christmas being as nice as the last one.
