Solstice

Red and Green,

Nosegays of ribbon,

Twirled ’round every tree and door

Presents all bows bedecked

Cookies adorned and sparkling of sugar

As the season of gifts draws to a close

The color faded to simply a few rays

Strings of lights blossom bright

Strands so grand that casts away

The shadows of New Year’s darkest nights.
