Christmas Gifts

Lie beneath the tree
in all of their shine and glitz:
An affirmation
conjured once a year
to remind us that we have

Now, all the year’s restraint
can be forgotten
We feel a great merriness
and fill our homes with gifts
as if we were royalty

We gather together,
share familiar tastes and smells,
hear the old music,
hum along with that rich sound
that casts everything in gold
