Christmas Edition

On this special day of redemption and reconciliation, we take pause from our usual reflections on the economy and financial markets.  It’s Christmas Day, after all.  Why not keep things merry?

Hence, what follows is the poem Christmas Past, by Carice Williams.  Perhaps it will revive a fond childhood Christmas memory or two.  Enjoy!

Christmas Past

Christmas Past, by Carice Williams

Each Christmas I remember
The ones of long ago;
I see our mantelpiece adorned
With stockings in a row.

Each Christmas finds me dreaming
Of days that used to be,
When we hid presents here and there,
For all the family.

Each Christmas I remember
The fragrance in the air,
Of roasting turkey and mince pies
And cookies everywhere.

Each Christmas finds me longing
For Christmases now past,
And I am back in childhood
As long as memories last.

Christmas Edition

That’s it for today’s Christmas Edition.  Merry Christmas!
