Another Holiday Over
‘Twas the evening of Christmas,
and all through La Maison,
every creature was stirring:
talking, eating, drinking, and having fun.
A slew of jolly relatives were there,
joking and bantering without a care.
I, in my holiday finery,
my family looking spiffy,
I headed to the kitchen,
to fill my plate in a jiffy.
As I approached the buffet,
my eyes flew open wide,
a whole array of goodies were there:
spinach dip, cookies, salami, olive tapenade, and pavlova besides!
I eagery piled my plate, up and up,
and chose a cold beverage to fill my cup,
then in by the fireplace I went with my spread,
beloved holiday memories dancing in my head.
As the evening wore on,
and stories were told,
a warm, fuzzy feeling enveloped us all,
the young and the old.
Another Merry Christmas has passed,
the year of 2011 is nearly done,
here’s to hoping that your holiday…
was a happy, safe one!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone! ~MV
