Since the Christmas season is fast approaching, I thought this might be appropriate for the time frame we are in. Hope you enjoy it. Gore Park is a downtown Hamilton park.
Christmas at Gore Park
Twinkling lights on Gore Park trees
little children shout with glee
riding in miniature red train
I see them through my window pane.
Parents, grandparents, older siblings
shuffle feet to keep cold from nibbling
as the snow starts to whirl around
the little red train does its round
Faces all aglow from the cold
little children a sight to behold
scarves wrapped around red faces
snowsuits and boots with laces
Fingers tingle in red mittens
hands and feet feel frost-bitten
Santa’s elves in North Pole
two are here playing their role
Christmas lights, falling snow
Happy faces, a bewitching hour.
