The Christmas Tree and The Elf

December 25, 2021 at 8:13 pm (Christmas, Poetry) (, )

“One of the ornaments needs adjusting,”
Said the beautiful female elf
Who stood on a ladder and adjusted
The ornament below the Christmas Star.

5 minutes ago there was not a beautiful female elf in my room
But now there is.
Merry Chistmas.
10 minutes ago there was not a ladder in my room
But it appeared 9 minutes ago.
24 hours there was not a Christmas tree in my room
But it appeared when I woke up this morning.

Christmas Tree
Then ladder
Then beautiful female elf.

Christmas Magic is obviously at work here.

Or maybe what the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future
Put in my eggnog last night.

Whatever it was, Merry Christmas!
Feliz Navidad!
Chuc mung Giang Sinh!

(I attended a Spanish language Church over the summer.
And the closest Church to where I now live is a Vietnamese Catholic Church.
So I attended there for Christmas Eve Mass last night and went there for Christmas Day Mass today).
