ONLY YULES & VERSES 3 OF 24 - CHRISTMAS LIGHT ENTERTAINMENT - HO! HO! HO!

 



When the original Only Yules & Verses book was self-published in 2013, an unsolicited comment appeared on Amazon.  I call stuff like this little nudges of encouragement.  Of course, for every flattering nudge, there are several pokes in the eye waiting in the wings. Here’s the comment:

 

“Only Yules and Verses is one of those special little books that you happen upon serendipitously. I have read authors' blurbs before extolling the mirth to be found in THEIR book only to buy the book and be severely disappointed. What an unexpected joy, therefore, to pick up this little gem and read it to the end with smiles, a few laughs out loud and some headshakes at the ingenuity of Joe Cushnan. I thoroughly enjoyed this and wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone.

 

P.S. I am not a friend or family member of the author, but how I wish I were!”


I'll take that!


ONLY YULES & VERSES - CHRISTMAS LIGHT ENTERTAINMENT 

HO! HO! HO!


CHRISTMAS CRIB OUTSIDE

ST TERESA'S CHURCH

 

It was the highlight of the year,

Apart from toys on Christmas day,

To see the outdoor crib

Where the baby Jesus lay.

 

Memory and maturity spoil

The wonder of it all

For the star was a bulb

And Jesus was a doll.

 

 

GOD’S GIFT

 

"Congratulations," said God,

Here is your present. 

Treat it with care,

Its uses are wide,

Detailed instructions

Are tucked inside."

 

"Thank you," we said

And pulled at the string,

Clawed at the wrapping

Like kittens at play,

Found the instructions

And threw them away.
