#Curtains – For Thursday Inspiration #136

It was the night before Christmas,

the curtains pulled tight, our

tree shone brightly with colourful

lights. Mince pies were placed on a platter

so Father Christmas would just have to get fatter.

A key was hung by the door just in case

he couldn’t get through the old fire grate.

Sleeping impossible I just couldn’t do it.

What if Santa in our chimney wouldn’t fit.

I swear I heard bells, and a deep voice a booming,

but the next thing I knew I was quietly snoozing.
