Feeling a lot like Christmas – a Quadrille

Feeling a lot like Christmas

Freshly hewn logs
stacked in neat piles
dusted with a light layer
of soft snow
Christmas trees
lined up ready for sale
Excited children
with hearts aglow  
Melodic carols being sung
Chestnuts on a fire
Jack Frost in the air
Memories from long ago

    Reminded me of the cords of firewood needed to get through a winter in Maine.

      Yes I remember the stacks of wood. Those are the winters that are exciting in my head. I just can’t live them in real time anymore 🥶

    Your poem has a lovely seasonal tone, Christine! I just put another log on the log burner – it’s glowing!

    Love this! For me, early morn when by husband is still abed, I sit in the living room with the tree lit, candles lit, darkness outside still….and that is the time when the memories come flooding in….and mostly I smile.
