Yes, Marcia, the Christmas Poem appeared on Facebook with “Author unknown”!  I thought it worth sharing with our BOOKOHOLICS!  KUDOS to the unknown author!

 T'was a month before Christmas,

 And all through the town,

 People wore masks,

 That covered their frown.

 The frown had begun

 Way back in the Spring,

 When a global pandemic

 Changed everything.

 They called it corona,

 But unlike the beer,

 It didn’t bring good times,

 It didn’t bring cheer.

 Airplanes were grounded,

 Travel was banned.

 Borders were closed

 By air, sea and land.

 The world entered lockdown

 To flatten the curve,

 The economy halted,

 And folks lost their nerve.

 From March to July

 We rode the first wave,

 People stayed home,

 They tried to behave.

 When summer emerged

 The lockdown was lifted.

 But away from caution,

 Many folks drifted.

 Now it’s December,

 And cases are spiking,

 Wave two has arrived,

 Much to our disliking.

It’s true that this year

 Had sadness a plenty,

 We’ll never forget

 The year 2020.

 And just ‘round the corner -

 The holiday season,

 But why be merry?

 Is there even one reason?

 To decorate the house

 And put up the tree,

 Who will see it,:

 No one but me.

 But outside my window

 The snow gently falls,

 And I think to myself,

 Let’s deck the halls!

 So, I gather the ribbon,

 The garland and bows,

 As I play those old carols,

 My happiness grows.

 Christmas is not cancelled

 And neither is hope.

 If we lean on each other,

 I know we can cope
