December 16th……….“DID YOU EVER WONDER, GRANDPA, WHAT CHRISTMASTIME WAS LIKE BEFORE YOU WERE BORN OR AS A TINY BABY IN 1954”??
POEM – “Christmas Glee, Before There Was Me” by N. Elliott Noorlun. Created December 7th, 2018.
In Christmas times, Before I was born,
Before my bottom, Had diaper worn,
It must’ve been special, The time for our clan,
To Grandma’s or Uncle’s, House they ran.
In the days long before, Electronic device,
Instead were books, And other things nice.
Like boxing gloves, For my handsome big brother,
While shadow-boxing near, Christmas tree with our mother.
Or our father reading, The local news,
While our sister, Rosie, On the couch would snooze.
Or Yuletide times, At our uncle’s house,
With all our clan around, And my uncle’s spouse,
Playing piano, While little ones sang,
Those Christmas Carols, Oh my how they rang!
When ’54 Christmas, Came rolling around,
Cousin Marc and I, We lent our sound,
To the old-fashioned holidays, That had come before,
T’was now our turn, To enjoy many more!!! 😉
