Christmas Magic

The air is full of expectation
mystery lurks round every corner
the presents passed out bring exhalation
none of this possible without your partner

Close your eyes, let go and think back
to the days of your childhood
remember believing in Santa and his sack
nowadays whats the likelihood

The magical spell of Christmas
is surely in the special fragrant smells
frankincense assaults me at mass
brings memories flooding back in swells

The warmth of feelings
as friends gather around
sitting down to dumplings
makes my heart abound

contest Christmas Magic

Dumpling in Scotland we make a fruit dumpling that is around 2 feet wide
placed in an unused pillow case and steamed served hot Christmas day
and then cold or fried they usually last 8-12 days

    Oh this sounds fun to look forward to such a big dumpling. My mom was part Scotch. She used to make small fruit dumpling. Congratulations. Love, Joyce

    lovely write Shadow. sounds like a beautiful tradition. Down here it is usually stinking hot. A far cry from the Christmas days I had as a child in Peckham. I used to love England at Christmas time. Good luck in the contest, my friend....peter
