Take down the holly and the tree,
put lights and tinsel back in store.
It’s time to end our revelry
till Yuletide circles round once more.


Whatever happened to daylight —
mid-morning and the lights are on,
but the north-west is looking bright,
could dark clouds soon be gone?

Walking Home

Walking home along dusk-darkening streets
Christmas lights illuminate the gloom
and twinkling reflections in the puddles
sparkle like myriads of multicoloured gems.
