A Christmas Poem

Renforth Boat Club Christmas Poem 2017

The lobsters are all cooked,
The beef is nicely broiled
Potatoes carrots and sauces
In pots on the stove to boil

The pies and other goodies
All out of their boxes and waiting in rows
Santa suit prepared and presents all arranged
for all the good little girls and boys.

It was a great season
with new faces and new hands
Lots of work finished
To the future with plans!

Boats were bought and boats were sold
Some changed hands. And some just got old.
Challenges and breakdowns were always afoot
Lots of advice and some help too to keep them afloat

The boats are nearly all covered
All tucked in and put away
Winter projects have begun
As dreams for a new day

No storms to speak of
Like we’ve had in the past
But winter is here now
And we’ll see how we last

And now it is time to give thanks
To offer a great cheer
Of gratitude and generosity
For this time of year

It is the season to prepare for Christmas
For the exchanging of gifts
The trimming of trees
Egg nog and punch and secret Santa’s please

But let’s not forget
gods Holy one
Sent here to earth
to teach us each one

May he stay in our hearts
And guide our minds too
With actions and gifts
So that we can bless you
