Notes on the disappearance of Christmas...

Poinsettia is losing its leaves but not its red brachs Tinsel coiled Lights wound up and wound down batteries removed Odd decorations found hanging from the lights later Wreaths removed Presents still leaning on the mantelpiece – what shall I do with… Some wrapping paper unused and some recycled Xmas cards left over And xmas cards I really must go through Candles –well we can carry on using them The xmas fairy turned out to be a star and then a golden bird from Indonesia or somewhere afar Baubles now in boxes, No holly brought in this year / Cheer Games to put away Up into the loft We used to… hang streamers – curl/twist them round – then hang silver strips –
