Christmas Eve

Its Christmas Eve again
Blood and pine coloured ornaments
Hanging from Christmas trees
Sugary sweetness
From Grandma's famous cookies
Coming from the kitchen
After taste of chocolate brownie desert
As I walk to the fireplace
Warm and burning bright
Crackeling red and orange
I hang my red stocking
On a single crooked nail
Before checking the milk and cookies
And walking to my room

Back
