The Night Before Christmas – A Narration


This narration of the famous poem The Night Before Christmas was my gift to all the children who in one way or another have touched my life. I dedicate it to my grandchildren who make my life even more worthwhile. Merry Christmas to all. Happy Holidays to all who celebrate family, love and harmony.

 

The Words I Love #2


These are some of the words I truly love:

There’s gorgeous, grandiose, and green

then there’s soothe, silly, and savvy

and of course, omnipotent, and magnanimous

along with mini and mania,

but best of all are verbs

like kiss, kissing, and kissed.

These words I will forever miss.

Since this first poem I have added some more words I love.

 

There’s lenience, tolerance, and mercy

attention, expectation, phenomenon

unity, diversity, and harmony

humility, reverence and respect

but the best are verbs and acts of kindness

like love, loving, inspiring, and unifying

giving, caring, and keep

I deeply hope you got my gist

Let us stand up and help love persist.
