Countdown to Christmas

Ten days till Christmas.  The tree is up.  It is hopelessly crooked.  Wait…strike that, it is gracefully leaning.  Like the wondrous Leaning Tower of Pisa.  Our tree is our personal little wonder.  It is nice, and full, and it smells great.  We did our best putting it up.  That is all that matters.  We only fought a little.  Mostly for the sake of the tradition.  We passed the annual ‘marriage test.’  We are good for another year.

'Magical Transformation' (or 'The Power of Perspective')

Ten days until Christmas,
We’ve put up the tree,     
It’s hopelessly crooked…   
Oh boy, did we try - 
It just wouldn’t do it,
It wouldn’t stand straight. 

Let’s put on the music, 
Let’s string those lights,
Let’s add decorations…
Oh, look at it now!
With just a few touches
It’s not a bad tree.

Ten days until Christmas,
We’ve got our tree,
It’s gracefully leaning -
Our ‘Torre di Pisa’…
Oh, isn’t this magic?
May peace be with you.

Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur
