A perfect pear for Christmas breakfast,
With warm pastries from Tellico Grains.
Skies are clearing; creeks are running high
After last night’s strong winds and hard rains.
A cozy wood fire in the fireplace
To start our holiday morning right.
The power came back on at our house
With it, our many colorful lights.
Jesus was not yet in the manger;
I’m still looking for our manger scene.
But our Nativity ornament,
We have displayed on our tree of green.
Ornaments are hanging on our tree,
With the popcorn string that’s wound around.
Carols are playing on the TV;
Creating joyous holiday sounds.
We’ll lunch with our children and our grands;
Last trip this year with Santa’s red sleigh.
Then back to the holler and to bed,
To rest before our guests come to stay.
