Seconds Till Christmas

Tick...tock...tick...tock,
The sound of the hanging clock,
Pitter...patter...pitter...patter,
The heartbeats all scatter,

A few seconds till twelve,
Before I shall delve,
Into the joy of green and red and glitter,
Of Christmas in the midst of winter,

Hot chocolate milk and gingerbread treats,
Where people gather and family meets,
To take part in this wonderful occasion-
Of festivities and celebration...

And let us not forget,
Presents and gifts that we’ve yet to get,
Wrapped and placed for all to see,
Underneath the lovely Christmas tree,

Decorated in trinkets and bows,
A rainbow of colours it shows,
Adorned with ribbons and balls,
Bound to light up empty halls,

Do remember the feast on the eve,
An important event, I believe,
Where roasted turkeys and mashed potato and gravy reside,
You can never resist; trust me, I tried,

Oh, I do get a thrill,
If I thought to stand still,
To think of wreaths and mistletoe,
Just a few seconds to tomorrow,

Tick...tock...tick...tock,
The sound of the hanging clock,
Pitter...patter...pitter...patter,
I truly can’t wait for that matter...
