Tag Archives: seen from outside


Maintenance put up the tree,

Near the window we see…

It from outside

A glorious sight,

To be decorated shortly!

Storage tubs on the side,

Hold trinkets to open hearts wide…

Chains and baubles

Releasing troubles

At least For Christmas-tide.

A figure of what we remember

From childhood, late December…

Of family

And times to be,

Many years later remembered!

Monday or later this week,

These baubles uncovered speak…

The Common Room

Shall assume,

The air of Christmas mystique!
