The Season Is Upon Us
By V. Rodney Harrison Jr. – 12-14-2010
As the winter chilled winds gust even stronger,
And the frosty temperature continues to descend.
Once again my eager mind becomes familiar,
As if finally returning - was a long lost friend.
The blessed season of generosity has returned,
A time of care for our struggling - fellow man.
Time to share with the world ones peace and good will,
And to bring to all around all the joy that we can.
A tranquil smile extends across my content face,
As memories from my childhood warm me from within.
Of anticipation for the arrival of the beloved Saint Nick,
And of the account of our Savior who had no room at the Inn.
Warm cider and hot chocolate enjoyed by a cozy fire,
Plump marshmallows and chestnuts roasting close in hand.
Majestic gifts from the heart being given to one another,
Completed with mistletoe...
