Christmas Spirit

After welcoming the first fluffy snow
The spirit of Christmas has got me in its throes
I dig up the lights, put up the tree
wrapped gifts are out for all to see
Then I go through the vinyls,
to find the ones with the carols
Side tracked with Sinatra, Dean, Nat Cole
Threw on some Miles and Coletrane too
Before I knew it I’m rummaging through time
But then, all in all, it was a good night

Christmas Quadrille

20171106_16193388776501.jpg

De Jackson (aka WhimsyGizmo), is our host this week on Quadrille Monday over at dVerse Poem. The challenge is to make sure the poem is precisely 44 words long, and literally contains some form of the word kick.

So here is mine, my first Quadrille

 

New curtains, throw pillows new spreads for the beds

Fruits been soaking
With this there’s no joking

In bath of red wine spiked for kick with
other kinds

Digging out Christmas Carols

job for brother Darryl

Meats highly seasoned

we’re set for Christmas Season
