is a time for wonders, for miracles and hope,
it is the time for ponderers to wish and plan and do.
Itís time to make it happen, itís time to make a move,
itís time to shake some conscience, and create the mood.
For this special season that is upon us now
has every component to change the world anew
with each of the ingredients we use and bring to fore.
simply is no miracle we did not make ourselves.
We just pretend it is much more, as though
some fancy pinnacle like elves do our chores
and make wishes true and miracles galore.
So pick your wonder, make your choice,
decide, create anew the world you want to see
the same way you go shop and pick and buy a tree.
You could forgive a trespass, forget a silly lie,
or invite a loner for dinner in black tie.
You could bake more cookies than anyone could eat
and give the hefty surplus to a stranger
down the street.
Take sweaters down to shelters, blankets, boots and beds,
Itís all so very needed to avoid the helter skelter
Some live in our times without the aid of shelter.
Whatever you decide on, do it grand with heart.
It does not take an Einstein, you donít have to be too smart.
The only thing required is passion for the living.
That is the only reason for us to do the giving.
