It snowed a few times
and I wanted more
I was chilled to the bone once
but it’s been to warm
Spirits are waiting
to haunt the night
Ghosts are ready
to emerge from the ice
when I want to feast
Winter and Snow and frosty night treats
Holidailies Prompt: What has winter been like for you this year?
close my eyes
savored in front of a fire
tasted by my ear
by my brain
a winter feast
a summer day.

5. Carol Of The Bells
4. In The Bleak Midwinter
2. Rebel Jesus
AND THE #1 CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY SONG AT MY ENDURING BONES IS
THE BOAR’S HEAD CAROL!
The boar’s head in hand bear I
Bedecked with bay and rosemary;
I pray you my masters be merry,
Quot estis in convivio [as many as are at the feast].
Caput apri defero [I bring in the boar’s head]
Reddens laudes Domino [Giving thanks to the lord]
Caput apri defero
Reddens laudes Domino
The boar’s head as I understand
Is the rarest dish in all the land,
Which thus bedecked with a gay garland,
Let us servire cantico [serve it with a song].
Our steward hath provided this
In honour of the King of bliss,
Which on this day to be served is
In Reginensis atrio [In Queen’s Hall].
