Christmas Shopping

Town malls are cluttered with Christmas shoppers,
toting packages of last-minute-list-droppers.

Carols echo from high pillared ceiling,
leaving one and all with a charitable feeling.

Door frames draped with assorted Christmas light,
center stands a lit tree, what a glorious sight.

Children align mall walls waiting for Santa Claus,
to listen to their wishes and wants, just because.

Long grueling lines wind through department aisles,
confirming it is Christmas with occasional smiles.

Feet are aching from walks to distant shop,
shoppers sitting on benches, some refuse to stop.

    Just thinking of Christmas shopping has my feet sore. Just retired from retail so maybe this year I can---for once---enjoy Christmas. Good luck in Francine's contest. love phyl

    that was a cute last line The shoppers who refuse to stop. Shop till you DROP. It's fun to be like that at Xmas time!! A nice fun poem, Caryl.

    Cool one, Caryl. Hubby and I have chosen to simplify Christmas this year. One gift. A few under the tree for our girl. Your poem reminded me WHY :-) Trying to keep Christmas in the home and heart this year. Hope this places high! You certainly caught the mood and feeling of Christmas shopping. Cheers, Cyndi
