Poem of the Day: Snow on Cedars

Snow on Cedars
Sounds like a song
Nat King Cole and chestnuts
Something like that.

Brings to mind Christmas past and
Christmas proper - red and green
Wrapping with wassail and corolers
Not Wal-Mart or Walgreens
Blue-light special and
Bourbon and coke
Does it matter if Christmas
is done right?
