Artist's Description

Christmas Past

Pitch dark, trembling
hands holding a dim lit torch cold fingers fumbling
at the foot of the bed,
feeking for Dad’s stretchy
woollen sock.
So carefully tied to the bedpost
last night.
It’s lumps and bumps and crackling
noises promise untold treasures.
Anticipation is too great,
and the nose dives in
to sniff the sharp citrus smell.
Carefully now, hand in the top,
Open the rustling paper quietly.
A book, poking high
“The Eildon Tree”,
A new dress with fringes
for Minnehaha.
A bag of coloured glass beads
To braid her hair.
A box of drawing pastels – bliss,
a sketch pad,
A chocolate mouse
Cob nuts
and at the toe
the wonderful soft easy to peel
tangerine.
“He’s been!”

He said he did not believe.)
