The Gifts of the Season

Twas the day before Christmas and all 'round my heart,
were wrapped strings and connections
from which I did not want to part.
⍋ ⍋ ⍋⍋
What's it about anyway?
Is it gifts, songs, family,
or about what no one can take away?
⍋ ⍋ ⍋⍋
I'd rather have it be about the latter
than simply all the cling and clatter.
⍋ ⍋ ⍋⍋
So even if for just a moment,
I'll remain in the quiet spirit
of all that Jesus' birth did cement.
