is it not splendiferous

truly quite sublime

outrageously quite delirious

and here at Christmas time

*

could it be a better gift

accepted with importance

whether sonnet rhyme or riff

could it just be heady dreaming

*

a quirk in the readers scheme

that brought this brand new item

so cherished by a few

that sets my soul a dancing

*

and many others too

poetry sweet poetry

has found it's special place

invited to the table

*

to lend it's style and grace

hooray and hallelujahs

i'll try and bring my best

and if i can't i know that

*

my friends can bring the rest

yes i know ( i discovered ) the feeling sometime earlier this year-2011-and it's more than helped me along - your poetry and also comments about mine ( without having to check- yours was the first poem i read on this site and probably the first poem i had read in many many many years and also the first to comment on mine )- what a great feeling almost giddy really for all of this- thanks so so much !

I thank you, nan, from all of us, your special Christmas gift, a poem, a song, a yuletide chorus all, to set our souls adrift. au revoir, adieu for now I suppose we’ll wait and see, Did I forget, nan, to tell you ciao, my Christmas chickadee?
