Christmas Morn by Claire Nixon
Cold frosty mornings
                                    Ice on window pain
Huddle under coats
                       keep the warmth in
                                                        Tiptoe down the stairs
all quiet and hushed
                                 barge through the door
                     to see what’s waiting for us.
A Christmas tree sparkling,
                                                multi coloured lights,
                                                                         large shiny baubles, and
                      an angel smiling with delight.
Paper chains, garlands
                                              bells, stars and balloons
                                                                                         dangling from the ceiling.
Pine from the tree,
                         fresh cooked bread, cakes,
                                                                  jam tarts and scones,

these are the scents waiting for us.
                                                    A coal fire burning
              warmth is in our hearts
singing along to carols
                                           on this cold and frosty morning.
This day may not be THE day,
                               but it is deep down in our hearts.
