On Christmas Being Officially Over
Twelve nights passed, baubles boxed,
branches stripped bare, glitter gone
rainbow unplugged, house dull
Have a slightly sad-looking tree, devoid of decoration standing in the corner of the room. Nice to have the house ‘back’ though – seems bigger now! I shall miss the fairy lights though, that rainbow of colour. Love nothing more than sitting in a quiet, dark room and gazing at the tree. Even better when you are myopic like me….try taking your specs off… the lights look even more magical. In fact who says the fairy lights have to get packed away. They bring me joy so I’m just going to find somewhere else to string them… we all need a bit more magic and colour in our life.
