O, my December!
how you arrive!
the cold nip in the air…
December! You waft in the feel of Xmas
our Lord Jesus descending from heavens to hug humans
poor humans, weather-beaten, distressed
looking up, pleading, in hope…
Yes, kindness falls…
with innocent radiance of the babe in a manger
Swaddled in the simple,
lying in straw strewn abode
smiling at the world…
Hah! December! Cool December!
bring us solace!
