Behind the golden pumpkins

hide sleigh bells in the snow

while in the shadows of the witches

inflatable Santas

impatient for their turn

wait for the black cauldrons

to become baskets of pine cones

painted silver

before the very last selection boxes

sold on Christmas Eve reveal

the posters ready to announce 

January sales

as the first Easter bunnies

limbering up ready for their turn

practise racing around

Valentine’s cards.

Have a scary New Year

have a merry Halloween

have a cosy Easter

have a chocolate Valentine’s

and above all

have a loving Christmas.
