SO…WHAT DID YOU GET????

SO….WHAT DID YOU GET????

 

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!  🙂

CHRISTMAS GIFTS I CAN’T GET

CHRISTMAS GIFTS I CANNOT GET

 

Every year we will regret

The gifts that we cannot get…

Like a brand new car

Or a giant bar

Of beeswax for skier Suzette.

I’d like to put my vote here,

For sugar-free ginger beer…

With kick that sails

Beyond ginger ales,

To that stuff I’d certainly steer!

I suppose it’s too much to ask,

To simplify my modeling task…

A coal trestle guide

With examples world-wide,

From present-times and from the past.

And while I’m thinking so wild,

I’m hoping to be profiled…

To sell my book

So folks will look

And I’ll get a check once in a while!
