All is Calm. All is Bright

T’is the season called Christmas,
Sounds loud and pace fast.
Sales, parties, concerts,
The task list gets vast.

There are gifting and giving,
And shopping galore,
With a red-suited mascot
Who makes all want more.

But some grow suspicious.
Yes, some minds think twice,
Silent nights might be lacking,And less may suffice.

More playing, more praying,
More quiet, more care.
No elves and no Visas
Are needed for flare.

Connection and closeness,
With others and God,
Pursue these for Christmas;
Be wonderfully odd!
