From my poetry blog. Soon be Christmas.
At This Time A virginal shroud settles upon our abodes. Fairy lights flicker in the long night. Inside, all manner of songs and odes are offered to acclaim our rite. Those of us not overtly religious indulge themselves out of tradition. Those of us not openly pious offer tacit prayers without petition. But all desire to feel the joy that shines forth from every child's eyes. An augury, in innocence's employ, that lifts the soul amongst the winter skies. Though we partake in the gathered feast, and survive the night imbibing wine, we recognise, when all has ceased, that part of man inherently divine. ©Andrew James Murray
Love the images of wonder and delight.
I miss having young children around, especially as Christmas approaches. All of my friends with young children will be out of town for Christmas (as will I).

Yes children do bring a sense of wonder to the season, but we as adults can still discover it if we look hard enough! Hope you have a great Christmas Linda, wherever you are.
