Christmas In Florida
Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas!! From close to the Keys
While you have your snow fall – we have a warm breeze!
This year is sure different, no zero below – hardly a reindeer and surely no snow!
Not much of the hustle & bustle of shopping – the temperature seems to be the only thing popping!
We miss all the trimmings, the ribbons & bows – but the trade off is great as we still wear less clothes!
Off to the beach for a Christmas day swim – while others tell stories, tales of Tiny Tim!
We miss all our family and friends this is true, but really were tired of lips cold and blue!
No fireplace, logs or chimney is near – wonder how Santa will visit us here?
No time to bake pies, pumpkin or peach – I must work on my tan or nap at the beach!
Enjoy your turkey and stuffing with gizzards – while our front yard is full of strange lizards!
No money could buy the delights that we share – from dolphins that dance to the sunsets’ orange glare!
To wake up each morning and hear sea gulls cry is better than anything money can buy!
The beauty of nature could not be replaced – except for the smile we would see on your face!
The pace is much slower but that’s a good thing – we do hear the church bells of Christmas still ring!
It may be dark there but the sun here is bright – come down for a visit its just a short flight!
You all have an invite, anytime of the year – I highly suggest that you bring your own beer!
I will end my thought on a note that is light – Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!!
Peace on earth and goodwill to all
