I am NOT a poet. Please don't bother to review. I know I'm a lousy poet. I've been reading all the lovely poems my friends have posts and thought I would also say MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! I'm jealous over the lovely snowy weather. I can just imagine how the Christmas lights glisten off the snow. We have lights here too, but not the same effect. LOL
