Hearth and Home and Holidays

        "...sing, laugh, be merry...and cherish friends..."

 

Oh, Hearth and Home and Holidays!

Now gather friends and let’s give praise!

In later years these are the days

To which we’ll fondly cling

 

The table’s set and love abounds

Around the room there’s ne’er a frown

We talk like fools and laugh like clowns

These days such pleasures bring!

 

So raise your cup, we’ll make a toast!

To all the ones we love the most

Now let’s sit down and carve the roast

We'll dine and drink like Kings!

 

Remember, too, the poor outside

Remember, too, the friends who’ve died

Our luck in life can’t be denied--

We’re rich in all good things

 

So once again, please raise your cup

We drank fine wine, in bounty supped

Of times like these, there’s ne’er enough

Bad moods away they fling

 

And when our friends do fin’ly go

About the house there’s still the glow

Of these, the best days we shall know

The air with friendship rings!

 

So, Hearth and Home and Holidays

These are the best--deserve our praise

And so, my friends, cherish these days

With joy and kinship sing!

This is incredible! I cannot even emphasize how much I loved this enough for you to truely understand. Very wonderful and incredible. It was truely beautiful. I really enjoyed this and I hope to see more from you. You are a very talented writer and that is a very well talent to have. Don't ever let it go! This poem really got me thinking about life, and I could tell that's what you wanted. You wanted the emotion to drift through your words so smoothly to the reader and I could definetly feel the emotion throughout the poem. Nicely done and very well written! : )

"We're rich in all good things..." A wonderful sentiment not to be forgotten the whole year through. Happy Holidays to you and yours

This is a finely penned piece for the holiday season and, wonderfully, no mention of gift giving. Many have forgotten the greatest gift is ourselves. Good times with friends and family are wonderful and memorable to help us get through the bad times. You, even, mentioned those who are in the street. If they have a common place to stay outside, take some of your "leftover" bounty to them.

Wonderful, simply wonderful!

This is the first poem I have read by you in a long while:

So raise your cup, we’ll make a toast!
To all the ones we love the most
Now let’s sit down and carve the roast
We'll dine and drink like Kings!

those are my fav. lines

Yes let us not forget the true meaning of the holidays. Family, friends, health, and love.

Remember, too, the poor outside
Remember, too, the friends who’ve died

Amen my friend.

This would make a great song! I can just hear a christmas carol coming out of this one :)

Great write. You capture a wonderful sentiment. As jolly as the holidays seem, we should still be aware of people who are not so fortunate and remember them while we enjoy the wine and food. No time like the holidays to help out the needy!

So what's the most important thing to say about myself? I guess the overarching aspect of my personality is that I am a scientist, an astrophysicist to be precise. Not that I am touting science.. more..
