TEN DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS

CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN

Ten days before Christmas
There is still much to do
Time to dress up the house 
Lights add a brilliant hue
	
Take out the ribbons and bows
The Cards and all Tags
The figurines and trinkets 
And all Christmas bags

Find a clear place to start
Wrapping gifts large and small
Sign your cards with love
And a greeting to all

Rest when you are done
You have accomplished a lot
Ten days until Christmas
Is there something you forgot?

CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN

CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN

Fifteen days until Christmas

And what have you done

Just starting shopping

Don’t forget anyone

I tried to avoid the crowds

By shopping the stores online

Some stores ship quickly

Others take their time

I expect some late arrivals

Must wrap them as best I can

Can’t run out of paper or tags

What happened to my perfect plan

Now, I must run

Got shopping to do

Fifteen days until Christmas

Happy shopping to you

~Paula
