Christmas Eve

 Christmas cheer at this time of year
As those we love gather far and near.

Festive songs and blinking lights;
cooking, baking, long into the nights;

Little folks stare with big-eyed wonder
At piles of gifts and the tree they're under.

Hurry, the lists must keep pace with the days.
One more now is left, so the calender says.

As I rush with the vacuum and mop in my grip,
I stop in an instant with a smile on my lip.


Peaceful, quiet, lost in his snores:
His slumber makes me giggle,
a funny pause from my chores.

Then I get up from the picture I stooped to snap.
Now back to the tasks, I'll leave him to his nap.

Happy Christmas Eve, everyone!!!
