Christmas Memory

There was a Christmas long ago

And I was there and so were you,

And when we gathered by the tree

Joy had had gathered too.

 

And there were gifts and there was food

And there was laughter and surprise

And you would open gifts of mine

And love was in your eyes.

 

And on that Christmas long ago

As we sat round the table (square)

We spoke of family and friends

Who were no longer there

 

To share that Christmas long ago.

And now I wonder whether you

Gather by a tree somewhere

Remembering me too.

Glazed Nativity inside the old Conduit House, Sherborne

 

The bells of Sherborne Abbey are famed as the heaviest peal of eight in the world! Four of them were cast by the imperilled Whitechapel Bell Foundry.

The Tree

Christmas Tree resized

In the corner I am here

Standing as I do every year

So the light that shone for them

May shine for you.

A Recipe for Comfort

Constant Comment tea.

The Christmas mug with the nearly faded snow man. 

A splash of milk.

A teaspoon of superfine granulated sugar.

A sip.

And peace descends.
