Across the River from Our House…
A ten mile string of Christmas lights,
Made a marvelous, festive scene.
All blinking, red and orange,
Although, I did not see any green.
There was the odd one flashing blue,
Just for contrast I suppose.
It all began just after eight,
When it ended, Heaven knows.
I watched ‘till almost midnight,
Before I decided to turn in.
That’s the brighter side of freezing rain,
Highway Five was closed again!
