The Christmas Elf

The second poem of my Trilogy illustrates the true meaning of Christmas and how a kindly little elf spreads joy to those who have little hope.

"With a tread, oh so soft, like a willow the wisp,

A small figure moves through the seasonal mists.

It creeps down dark alleys of vermin and waste

Where two mittened hands collect up your distastes."


"And just for a moment, perhaps even more,

They forget all their fears and their lives that were sore,

As they savour the sweetness and read the small label,

Happy Christmas to Alfred, or Daniel, or Mabel."
