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
