HOW SILENTLY, HOW SILENTLY

HOW SILENTLY, HOW SILENTLY

 

The office folks all gone,

Production will end in the morning (?)…

Security will be all by itself

In case of an alarm warning.

We’ll eat Thanksgiving dinner

Before our shifts or after…

For then we’ll have our family time,

Warm times filled with laughter.

For most, a long weekend,

Will follow Thanksgiving Day…

A few of us watch

To keep the bogies away.

HOLIDAY TIME OFF

HOLIDAY TIME OFF

 

Comes ’round Christmas time each year,

Time to plan for my wife’s cheer…

Making tracks

To th’Adirondacks,

Her family’s voice to hear.

Planning time and getting covered,

Asking the boss with timing leveraged…

Before a younger

Slates his hunger,

For family time, to be mothered.

Working through my schedule early,

Getting in first before the squirrelly…

Take away the chance to breathe

Mountain air and wood smoke wreath,

A blessed time for family, surely!
