Poetry Corner: “The Sounds”

Poetry+Corner%3A+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!
