Poetry Corner: “The Sounds”


Snow falls

Wind blows

Lights blink up and down the block


Bells ring

Trees dance

Thumps sound from the roof 


Soot flys

Presents crash

Footfalls are heard down the hall


Ornaments clink

Paper crinkles

Milk slurps from an empty glass


Kids sneak

A man chuckles

Something flies off the roof


Left behind

Wrapped tight

Are presents for those deserving


Children smile

Scurry to bed

Awaiting for the sun


Snow falls

Wind blows

Chuckles sound from up and down the block


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
