Smorgasbord Blog Magazine Christmas – Colleen Chesebro’s #Poetry Challenge -#Double Etheree Happy Christmas by Sally Cronin


Being the first challenge of the month, Colleen’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge 156 is left to our discretion as ‘Poet’s Choice’.

Having lived in several countries during the last six decades, it has meant that we have celebrated Christmas in a number of languages, with people of other faiths. There have been some amazing celebrations and parties, and without exception we have all come together in love and friendship irrespective of our individual beliefs. And the wonderful outcome is their reciprocation in including us in their own traditional celebrations.

Double Etheree – Happy Christmas by Sally Cronin

You
would think
at my age,
I would have lost
this childish delight
and anticipation
of the weeks of fun ahead.
Christmas represents many things,
depending on our faith or culture,
but at its heart is peace and love to all.
We are encouraged to be inclusive,
and change the name of this festival,
to call it just ‘the holidays’.
But my friends of other faiths
are delighted to share
our celebrations,
bringing their love
and friendship
as their
gift.
