suddenly alert
this splendidly antlered stag
looked star-skyward

and the many beasts
all watching the sky-bright night
were warmed and at peace

    DAVER, dropping by with a Christmas Carol. -- Dashing through the snow In a one horse open sleigh O'er the fields we go Laughing all the way Bells on bob tails ring Making spirits bright What fun it is to laugh and sing A sleighing song tonight Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one horse open sleigh Jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one horse open sleigh HEY! :) <-- You got to love it I do hope you sang with me... Goodnight my friend... LINDA

    Oh, this is lovely, Daver! Feels sort of magical and very hopeful. However what's this about Kiwi not being invited to draw Santa's sleigh? You know, if she ever heard that, she'd give Santa the middle toe? :) Is it true he'd eaten too many cookies, fell off someone's roof, and rolled down the hill in a gigantic snowball? Maybe only a rumour.:)) Love you, Daver, Mikki

    VERY interesting one for a New Year poem, Daver. I especially liked the imagery of the first one, the splendid stag gazing toward the stars.
