After months of window shopping
Gazing at displays – eyes popping!
With perseverance and passion
Baking with love and compassion
Lights, baubles, tinsels and a star
Displaying gifts from near and far
Prayers, Midnight Mass and church bells
That resonates past dales and dells
“Holy Kiss!” Let’s usher in peace
And pray that wars and battles cease.
