A Christmas Poem

christmas scene

Hey guys, it’s Christmas Eve and even though I’ve noticed that it’s been really quiet of late I thought that I would post a Christmas poem. I’ve written a fair few poems in my day but only one that had a Christmas theme.  That poem, A Bloggers Christmas Wish, Love And Peace To All, has received a lot of traffic leading up to Christmas and I thought it would be a great idea to write another one. It’s probably not my best work but then I’ve left it a little late and being in the retail industry I have to leave for work soon, yes, even on Christmas Eve.  :thumbs_down:

This one is a little different from the last one but it still has a message that I would like my readers to consider. I hope you enjoy it. Most importantly, I want to wish everyone and their families a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year.

The Day Before Christmas

It’s Christmas Eve, the day’s still youngEnglish: A Christmas tree lit and decorated, s...
Must check the list to see if all is done
The Christmas tree is up and all adorned
The presents placed and the children warned

Not to touch the presents until Christmas day
Stop bugging mum and go out to play
Must prepare the food for guests to eat
The Christmas table must look a treat

There’s lots of food, surely more than enough
Although the economy’s made the year real tough
Still, must thank the Lord for He did provide
Without his help I would have surely cried

Must not forget the poor who will go without
Unless I dig real deep for there is no doubt
The Lord wants is to help those in need
Let us not hold back lest we turn to greed

For on Christmas Day a Child was truly born
A gift from God so all who believe are reborn
Let’s not forget the lessons He taught
Otherwise, all He did for us will come to naught

Sire’s Scary Halloween Poem

scary halloween

I suppose you guys have noticed that my blog now has a Halloween feel about it? Something that I do on a constant basis is to change the theme so that it’s in keeping with the current holiday season and seeing how Halloween is just around the corner I thought it only fitting to give it that Halloween look. Lucky for me the FlexSqueeze makes it so easy to do.

Anyway, a little over three years ago, or three Halloweens ago  :wink_ee: I wrote a post called A Poem For Halloween The Night Of Frights and as it turns out that particular post brings in quite a bit of traffic every year around this time. Now I wonder why that is?  :smoke_tb: That particular poem had a twist to it and because it was so long ago I thought it only fitting that I should post another Halloween Poem!

Screams Of Halloween

It’s Halloween, the night of fright
Which child will go missing tonight?
Do they know on who’s door they knock?
For imagined treats, perhaps a shock!

Dark and scary, they venture still
Smiling pumpkins upon window sill
Dares’t they knock upon the door?
Knowing not who knocked before

Did they get the treats they sought?
Or perhaps some dreadful evil wrought
Upon young flesh sweet and innocent
So hungry for fresh souls to torment

Looking around, eerie sounds abound
Is that the baying of the devils hound?
Jack-O-Lantern’s smile or evil grin
A little fear brings goosebumps to skin

Though breath comes fast still they knock
Door creakily opens as though to mock
Candles light a path to their treats
Will they enter or quickly retreat?

Temptation too much for them to bear
They venture slowly in to claim their share
The door swings shut they whirl around
Demons, ghosts and ghouls did abound

Passersby heard their terrified screams
Their flesh did crawl as from their darkest dreams
But walk on by past the house obscene
After all, are not screams part of Halloween?

After posting this I thought that you might like to hear me give you a personal rendition and so I made a video and uploaded it to YouTube. I tried to give it a scary sound but I’m not sure that I succeeded  :laugh_tb:

Well, that’s it my scary friends. Did you enjoy it? Did it make your skin crawl? Which poem did you like best, the one from the other post or this one? If you enjoyed the video, please take the time to head on over to YouTube so you can give it the thumbs up. If you do I won’t have to haunt you  :devil_tb:

If you really liked it you know what to do, write me a comment telling me what you liked about it but most of all share it with your friends on the social media. Give it a Tweet, share it with your FaceBook friends, Stumble it or even give it a Google +1. You know you want to, before the ghouls come to get you.  :devil_tb:

Goodbye Josie, Forever In Our Hearts

Last night the family gathered around Josie to say our goodbyes as she left us behind. She was my beloved sister-in-law, sister of Anna and Sam. Auntie to Frank, Nadia and Ben. Mommy to Amelia and devoted wife to Nicola Zollo. Eldest Daughter to Maria and Giovanni Caruso; She will always be their cherished Guiseppina.

I’m honestly at a loss for what to say. We all loved Josie so much. She was always a guiding force and a shining beacon. Even though we knew she was not well we did not expect to lose her so suddenly.

There are many flowers in the world
But only one named Josephine
To her parents she was Guiseppina
Forever will she be in their hearts.

To Nicola she was Josie,
A part of him she will always be.
To Amelia she was mummy,
A guiding light she will always see.

To the rest of us an angel,
Always there in time of need
A flower, so pristine, so perfect
Too perfect for these earthly fields

So God plucked her from her loved ones,
so suddenly, it left a void,
We now know He had a purpose,
So, in heaven she could bloom.

Josie Zollo: Born 10 September 1956

                    Died 8 August 2012
