Sunday Sonnet!

🦋

In preparation for the festal day
That marks when their Emmanuel was born,
With fervent prayer and lights in rich array,
Devoted faithful hearts and homes adorn;
The masses, though, in their pursuit of fun,
Seduced by tinselled sirens’ cunning lure,
Unspoken quest forever leave undone,
The empty, deeper human need to cure;
And yet, unearned, tidings of grace abide
Within the carols, sung by one and all,
That lack of joy and peace shall none betide,
Until the world at large be held in thrall.
Hail Grace, emergent from virginal womb,
To Grace, emergent from unfettered tomb.

Sunday Sonnet!

Withdraw not from me constant gentle Muse,
Without your warm embrace, I cannot breathe
Your inspiration, writing to enthuse,
Forbid that sword of insight I must sheathe;
Fertility of thought on you rely
To feed the appetite for use of words,
Who reads or hears their souls to edify,
Enriching one and all like hummingbirds;
Your generous Care my heart with peace endow,
Within a world of ever growing din;
Commitment to your cause I do avow,
Pledged loyalty on oath this underpin;
The tenor of my life forever stays
Dependent on your love’s divining rays!

In December late,
Whatsoever be the clime,
Time to celebrate!

In Anticipation…

In preparation for the halcyon days,
Hear wand’ring minstrels sing their choral lays,
Once in a far-off town,
An infant of renown,
Was born to set eternity ablaze!

Festive Fun…

Cavorting WP

Making Merry…

smile emoticon kolobok

Westwind blows a gale,
Driving rain comes pelting down,
Shoppers grin and bear!

Children shriek with glee,
Pavement puddles splash and spray,
Wary women winch!

Brassband carols sing,
Festive mood pervades the air,
Gay Abandon reigns!

Mid the bustling fun,
Spare a thought for old, infirm,
Hearts and Spirits here!
