Good luck to you all.
The earliest memory of Christmas I have,
is when I was five years old,
Believing in Santa, I put a stocking
near my bed, beside my toe.
Christmas is not our festival,
yet dad had me believing so,
& lo and behold, when I woke up,
there was a gift from Mr. Ho ho ho!,
I couldn’t believe my little eyes,
& cried tears of joy,
while my dad’s face lit up as he said,
I told you Santa exists, didn’t I?

pedalling, spinning, weaving
whizzing round corners, zooming along roads

Laughing, lazying, chatting
Doing what you love, loving what you do,
smiling, thinking, talking,
