Christmas once again is near
A time for happiness and cheer.
Families will get together
in fine or stormy weather.

There are prayers to say and gifts to give
it’s a time to be thankful that we live.
Uncle Bill will soon arrive to keep us entertained
he tells us stories and he never is restrained.

Old friends will come along that we haven’t seen all year
we’ll eat nice food and maybe even share a beer.
Christmas is for sharing; a time for love and peace
for memories to keep in mind so they will never cease.

      Thank you so much, Booghost (I love the name by the way).

      Yes, I think you must know what I’m talking about with Uncle Bill if he’s anything like mine lol. I always get a kick out of his stories and I wish he’d drop by more as he’s always been my favourite uncle. Sorry about the late reply.

    Hi PD

    Sorry I am so late reviewing this and some of your others. I’ve been away and will catch up soon.

    Another very good poem from you and very well written with no mistakes that I can see.

      Thanks very much, Ambot. I know how you feel about being far behind. I never have enough hours in a day to do the things I want to do. Thanks again.

    It sure comes around fast these days, PD doesn’t it?

    A nice little piece that describes the festivities well and in nice rhyming poetry. I think we all must have an Uncle Bill to tell a yarn or two around the table.

    Well done

      Thanks a heap, Willy. I reckon you are right about us all having an Uncle Bill. I love hearing the stories from the old days.

      Thanks for your review and positive feedback.

    It really is that time of year, PD, the shops tell us it is! I love this, it brings to mind the happiness of Christmas, the friendly smiling people, the feel-good feelings we all share with old and new friends. I wish it could be like that all year, wouldn’t life be wonderful? There is nothing I would change in this delightful poem, it just puts a smile on my face. Well done. I’ve posted my Christmas poem, but it is really long. So I’ll not be expecting reviews. lol. I wish you all you have put in your poem, my friend. xx Sandra xxx

      Thank you, Sandra and I wish you and yours the same.

      Yes, it is that time of year. My how the years seem to fly past these days. As far as reviews on your Christmas poem go… I’m about to have a read right now, I’m miles behind and very sorry about that.
