ONLY YULES & VERSES 9 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 PRESENT VANISHES

 

Have you seen my magic set,

Can’t find it anywhere?

I’ve searched under the table,

I’ve looked behind the chair.

I’ve rummaged in all the cupboards,

I’ve been in every room,

No sign, no trace, no clue,

I’m sinking into gloom.

 

I’m lying on the sofa,

I feel a growing tear,

I mean - how can a magic set

Just simply disappear?
