Gather the family in close.
Find fuzzy socks for Grandma,
Hot chocolate for the kids.
A favorite aunt holds hands
with a favorite uncle.

If there is a fireplace
it would hold a crackling fire.
On the hearth a sleeping dog
Large and gentle.

Hearts toasty warm as his fur.

Lemon bubbles
burst, pop pop.

Blub blub, rub dub
down the drain

Swish, slosh,
The last is gone.

Duckie, tugboat
aground midst debris.

But everything's clean
