Christmas Day

Latika Ojha | December 24, 2020
Christmas Day

The spirit of Christmas hovers in the air 

With blithesome cheer; no time for despair.

‘Tis a season for love, warmth and care!

For goodies at home, fine clothes to wear.


The icicle embraced boughs behold,

Merry songs of the young and the old.

Mothers in kitchens absorbed in moulds,

Of cookies and cakes – tasks manifold.


A season of peace heralds the snow – 

Blusterous breeze of bonhomie blows;

Camaraderie between folks grows;

No time for pouts or sulks or lows.


Stout Santa sits smug on his sleigh,

All set to cheer the children at play.

And shower gifts, without delay,

Upon eager kids on this Christmas day!


Homes are warmed with chimneys bright;

Poinsettias, mistletoes – a pretty sight;

Stars and candles each corner alight;

What a jolly good night is the Christmas night.


Like all the rest – inside and out,

Let love within sparkle and shine;

Grievance and grudges all bygones,

On Jesus’ birth as we dine.
