Now You Know

No, by the grace of God, you will NOT plead ignorance. You will NOT testify that you never knew any better because no one ever taught you anything better. You will not plead that you were never told.

A Christmas Gift for You

Don't worry; I won't usually have this type of post for you all. However, in the spirit of Christmas, here is the first of two poems for you by yours truly:

Mistletoe II

It hung above the archway in the hall,

But other decorations made it seem

As though it were not hanging there at all,

Eclipsed by all the glitter, shine and gleam

Around the room and on a tree so tall

It almost touched the vaulted ceiling's beam.

Who would have guessed a sprig so slight and small

Was dangling like a half-forgotten dream

Or like a name you almost could recall,

If memory did not already teem

With all the Christmas guests who’ve come to call

Each yuletide in an ever-growing stream.

To think what I'd have lost, if I had missed

The mistletoe beneath which we first kissed!
