Christmas nears.
I do hear.
Holding ground
with one ear.

Sights I see
With out eyes.
Wonders only.
Wishes by.

Scents a’ lurking
all around.
Ghostly manners
pound for pound.

Taste of nothing.
Winter's bliss.
Flavor pulled
before a kiss.

thrilling was
his pond
pound for pound
but his call
was answered by

please
