Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® 388: ‘Little House in the Forest’ A Christmas Poem: ‘Romance for the Holidays’ by Rg2 (29) Vol. VI

09 Dec


“Little House in the Forest”

My grandpops said this before he passed,
“Don’t lose your values amid this material oasis”
Of all the riches a man’s ingenuity can amass
All the better he operates on a simplistic basis:

Endeavor, give, take not a day for granted
You will fall down but you will also fall up,
Each failure propels us to a higher ground
Each lesson a currency that filleth life’s cup

Woman, I’ve been busy learning and paper-earning
But stomach-turning was my life void of you,
From the meaning of Christmas I’ve tried not to stray
And for this one I’m determined to remain true

My values of a simple, honest life in written works
There’s a little house in the forest with a blazing fire,
Filled with hickory scents and sweet peppermints
I haven’t much to offer but if your heart’s desire

Is a fortress of protection from the frosty elements
And slow kettled-cooked chicken sausage winter soup,
Caramel hot cocoa with Hershey’s kisses-melted hints
Vintage black-and-white Scrooge movies on video loop

The thickest, softest sweater-socks to cover your feet
A bundle of handstitched oversize quilted throws,
To bury ourselves under so doesn’t escape the heat
Your head on my shoulder? Indeed, that’s where it goes

As others wait for Christmas, I say we make our Christmas
Will you allow me to share with you my poetic art?
Close your eyes and listen to my cadence in rhyme
If this is a holiday movie then you’re the best part

I haven’t much to offer that the richer man can’t match
Only a little house in the forest and a one-horse sleigh,
But if a home full of love for the holidays is your wish
Allow me the gift of your heart on Pamper-Her-Friday


Romance . . . for the holidays. -Rg2
