What to My Wondering Eyes Should Appear

Merry Christmas Everybody!

Hit the jump for some Christmas cheer!

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a Poodle.

The furry children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of agility shows danced in their heads,

When out in the woods, Owls arose such a clatter
I sprang from the bed because the birds matter
Away to the window while grabbing my flash
Finger on the shutter, threw up the sash

With big round eyes and head rotating so quick,
I knew in a moment the list was getting a tick

Ignoring the many warnings, St. Nick went straight to work
First trembled in his stockings, then turned with a jerk
There laid three growling Poodles staring up at his nose
Hauling ass, back up the chimney he rose!

I would like to exclaim, while a post I type
Happy Christmas to all my readers, who graciously view what I write.

Clearly a poet I am not, but I do want to thank everyone for spending time to read my musings here at Intrigued. It has been a tough year as we continue to navigate through the pandemic and the many implications and inconveniences that have come as a result. Hopefully you can at least embrace the holiday spirit, enjoy family and friends (at least to the best of your abilities as some of you out there are in forced lockdowns) and most of all, step back from the stress, remember the core values of a civil society, resist entities that try to divide us and, most of all, look with hope to the future.

Merry Christmas from the Doerflers (Linda, Benji, Raven, Ruger and I)
