WHAT WAS I THINKING…?

FIG ON A PLATTERFIG ON A PLATTER

ON the ninth day

Before Christmas

It came as a vision

A flash. No, a scare!

THIS FIG

Was just sitting

On a silly green plate

In the shape of a pear.

AS if by a thread

Poised high in mid-air

A twee bit of mistletoe

Was hanging just…there.

WHAT could I do?

How could I not?

Think up such a thing

And not want to share?

MY Seasonal Greeting

Is gratefully sent

Without hesitation

Neither stumble nor stagger.

THIS Holiday FIG

Made special for you, you and you

On a green pear-shaped plate…

That looks more like a platter.
