Christmas Without the Crowds

It's getting to be that time.

That is, at some point next week

all the frantic rushing about

will be over.  The parties will have ended.

The crowds will have gone home.

And what we'll have left will be that little piece of Christmas

That may not be seen with the eye.

But only felt with the soul.

That quiet, private part that yet brings us all together.

The part about Peace and Thanksgiving and Goodwill to All Men
