Here's a little poem I wrote for Super Kawaii Mama's Vintage Christmas competition.
Part one of my entry -
The night before Christmas
T’was the night before Christmas and all through the land
Super Kawaii mama readers reviewed the vintage Christmas they’d planned
Seamed stockings were hung beside a real Christmas tree
Not an ornament plastic, only crystals, ribbons and canes of candy to see.
The cookies and puddings were baked and prepared
Hand made with home grown ingredients no effort was spared
The candles are lit; not a fairy light to be found
Time to cheer our hearts with a mellifluous sound
Now Bing Crosby’s silent night from the gramophone blared
Lovers young and old under the mistletoe meet
Holly and ivy on the door bound in a wreath
The family gathers round to sit by the hearth
To share stories of the cheer from Christmas’s past
The children to bed
Their heads filled with dreams of St Nick
While we candy the apples and
make sure the decorations look schmick.
