As is traditional for us at this time of year, we are sharing with you a couple of short pieces – both poems, this time – of a ‘seasonal nature’. We hope you like them! They’re just a bit of fun, not meant to be taken too seriously!
Joanna’s poem: THE RUDOLPH PROMISE
My Rudolph jumper (made by Mum) is splitting at the seams!
I’ve been trying to ignore it – but I do know what this means:
Too many mince pies eaten (and some custard creams)
I’m even seeing Christmas cake dancing in my dreams!
So once this week is over, I shall have to make amends.
A diet will be needed, or this gift from Mum will rend!
It’s just so very difficult when all my lovely friends
agree that on those sweeter foods our happiness depends!
But this cannot go on – there’s no way I can deny
that my clothes are getting tighter, and more I’ll need to buy.
So to save my pennies and my health, I will resist that pie,
even though I’m leaving now to have a little cry…
Ron’s poem: FESTIVE FUN FROLICS
Festive fun frequents
Frightfully funny fellows.
Faces fixed focus
Fone fingers flicking.
Fretting following failure
Form further features.
Formulating future facts,
Forever feeling fortunate.
Fabulous famous followers,
Feathers fluttering frantically,
Frolic furtively forlorn.
Falsely farming favour.
Fostering frugal fondles.
Fruitful foreplay fragments,
Flounders foundation fidgets,
Fighting fiddly fidelity.
Flags flakey fingers,
Freezing Friday fortunes.
Fateful fake familiarity
Finally feelings freefall.
We both very much hope that you have a wonderful Yuletide and hugely enjoy any celebrations you are part of. We both celebrate Christmas so will be taking some time off with our families – and to recharge our creative batteries. But we’ll be back in early January. Have a magical New Year!
With lovelight blessings,
Joanna and Ron | The Lazuli Portals
