Instead, We Wait

November 26, 2018

For most, December means Christmas.
But not
for us.
We aren't holiday people.

Instead, we wait
for snow
Glorious, shining snow
that covers our shoes
soaks our ankles
and silvers our hair.

Instead, we wait
for hymns
Loud, rolling church hymns
that tell of the Holy Child
bring joy to our hearts
and smiles to our faces.

Instead, we wait
for love
Beautiful love
that arrives at Winter's start
makes eyes shine
and showing true spirit.

Instead, we wait
for December
the coldest month
yet the happiest month
tales of goodwill fly
songs of joy sung
bells rung
In December.

    This is beautiful! It's so peaceful, and I love the repetition of "Instead, we wait" as the first line of each stanza.

    This is amazing. Does it meet the word min/max?
