Amity’s Passion…

It is Day 2.

The second of the fairy sisters have spun her wand and out comes this jolly and feel good poem that reminds us of the cheer in the air, and the reason for the season.

Enjoy.

****

It is Christmas

A season to be merry
Everyone-a-preparing

Gifts and wrappers
Shoppers-a-shopping

Brightly lit streets
Everywhere-a-bubbling

Snowless winter
Leafless trees-a-Twinkling

Puddings and crackers
Turkey-a-roasting

Somewhere in the busy city
A soul-a-crying

Down in the cold alley
A heart is a-mourning

‘Cos it still don’t feel like Christmas without-a-loving

* give a gift of love to those who can’t repay you…
Visitย  the Motherless, homeless, old people’s home… Lets share the joy of Christmas with them*

    This is awesomeness Quaint and Dainty China! You did well to capture all that razzmatazz and glee that comes with this magical season while also dropping us those much-needed hints to take time out to remember those who are in dire need even as we go ’bout the fanfare, fun and pageanty the season boasts of! So we do not get carried away, with our heads in the clouds! That smarts dear, really does!

    Have I said too much already then?! The short of it….I adore this! The whole playful, pretty gleeful feel of it, as well as the seriousness! You know, that matter-of-factly clause you wisely threw in! Spectacular! Yet she rebuffs me for daring to call her a writer, hmph! Who’s the ‘man’ now ei?! Pray tell! LMAO!

    Thank you babycakes, you totally smashed this! You’re simply incredible and Happy Holidays to you and all of yours too! Mwah! *laughing*

        Aw! To think I was half expecting that you’d dazzle us with those freehand pencil sketches that sets you apart from all the others and gives you that edge, you know the ‘X-factor’ and what did you do?! You hoarded and kept that beautiful part of you away! Wanted to see Santa Claus in a classy pencil sketch you know! But you did bring this, and that curveball that you’re so well known for also did come to play! Thumbs up darling, you do great always!

        1. amity4 says:

          Next year. I shall dazzle you .hehehe

          1. Yemie says:

            Next year ei?! Okay, I’ll take it, I’ll bite! Hopefully, the Good Lord will find me worthy and keep my soul till then to be bedazzled by thou, mine Quaint and Dainty China! Hopefully! *tongue out* LMAO!

                    Oh, now that’s interesting! Can we have a peak please?!!!!

              3. topazo says:

                Yemie, give her all she wants o…we need them sketches…

            1. topazo says:

              did you see all the ‘Ayes”?

    2. topazo says:

      oh Yemie, you can’t say enough when it comes to Amity’s poems…she is one fine writer…

      1. Yemie says:

        She’s that and then some Doc! At least, I told her that much when we did our girly chat yesterday, just goofing off on one of her smash hit of a post titled ‘Inert’! With Amity, the more you look, the less you see! She’s that awesome! With her pieces, nothing is what it seems! Take this masterpiece for example, she started off all playful and things, and then drops the bombshell ‘Somewhere within the city, a soul a-crying’! That looked at first to be a damper, but couldn’t be far off from the truth: stark, cold, biting reality!That’s Amity, Spectacular, unpredictable, sheer brilliance! LMAO!

        1. amity4 says:

          Yemie!!!

              1. Adeleke Julianah says:

                1. Yemie says:

                  1. Adeleke Julianah says:

                    Yes Sis! Gotta take a deep drink from that Fountain of Words of Yours! Hehehehehe!!!!

                2. topazo says:

      2. amity4 says:

        Thanks doc.
        Thanks for putting it up .

        1. topazo says:

          thanks for the honor of featuring on my blog…

  2. Adeleke Julianah says:

    Hmmmm….and #Amity claims she’s no writer, and this poem makes me keep wondering who a writer is…captivating work of art. Covers every area of human needs, wants and passion. And still speak of the Reason for the Season, the real reason for Christmas Celebration, which is to share the love of Christ by stretching a given hand towards the less privilege. Good job Sis #Amity, wonderful poem, extraordinarily twined! Keep it up dear…

    1. amity4 says:

      Thanks Julie.
      I am still learning to write like a ‘writer’ you see.๐Ÿ˜Š
      yes the season is for loving and sharing everything we have especially with those who are not privileged .

    2. topazo says:

      Please discard that her “I am no writer” speech.

      1. Adeleke Julianah says:

        *Picks Amity’s ‘I’m no writer’ script, flushed it down the drain!*

  3. Adeleke Julianah says:

    ‘Aye’!!!!!!!! *raises both hands and legs in the air!*

    1. Yemie says:

      Legs okwa ya?! Hian! LMAO!

      1. Adeleke Julianah says:

        Yes Sis! It’s that serious!!!! Hehehehehehe!!!!!!

    2. topazo says:

      one…more people…
