I'd Rather Remember Christmas In JulyA Poem by Marie Harrison
A poem about enjoying life until the very end.
I’d Rather Remember Christmas In July
Because we cannot rely that
you’ll be alive beyond July,
this year let’s have Christmas
in Hawaii and in the month of July.
What a high that will be to scuba
with Santa and ride waves
that seem a mile wide.
Let’s kiss under the mistletoe,
Not in the snow drinking a cup of Joe,
But on the Hawaiian pier watching the undertow
Wearing our bikinis, swim trunks and flip flops,
Instead of our worn out matching house robes.
This year instead of presents,
Let’s give each other flowered leighs,
And besides watching for Santa’s sleigh,
We’ll scout for him hanging ten on a huge wave.
Usually a yuletide carol is sweet in December,
But won’t it be bitter sweet
when we look back and remember
Don Ho strumming his Hawaiian
Christmas songs under a beach cabana
Where everyone’s legs are long, tan and limber?
It’s spending Christmas with you
in Hawaii in July that I would rather remember
When you’re gone in December.
