Holidays, a word everyone loves!
Holidays, with their long mornings in bed,
Holidays, with their specially-cooked meals.
Holidays, with the outings with friends,
Holidays, with the family reunions.
The markets that smell of smoke and drinks,
The laughs, the shouts, the music,
All in a multi-coloured pandemonium,
From winter solstice to the Feast of Fools,
A endless celebration of the light that’s yet to come.
So eat, and drink, and dance, and be merry,
In but a month it’ll all be gone.
