Now that commotions have settled down,

What did you get this year…

Was it more than ties and socks

Or plastic mini-reindeer?

Part of this Christmas we bought ourselves

And guarded jealously…

My New Haven Rail calendar

I definitely wanted to keep!

I received a couple of imitation rocks,

Labeled with “FRIENDSHIP” and “HOPE”…

A ceramic bell (and socks as well)

From an aunt who has helped us cope.

I bought my wife a STAR TREK

Calendar…got a hug around the neck…

And  the trip up north, we sallied forth,

Where we spent a week to connect.

We both got new shoes for the year,

Even on sale, we paid dear…

Did you see the change

In poetic re-arrange,

It’s your turn to stand up and cheer!  🙂
