Dear December



Dear December

Maker and pointer

Writer and reader

Miner and payer

Burner and lighter

Teacher and preacher

Seer and seeker

Giver of butter,

Saver of sinner

Lover, not hater

Safer, not stiffer

Softer not stricter

Border our border

Sever not the center

Litter not our litre

Bother us never.


Dear December

Singer and mover

Cleanser and layer

Trainer and moulder

Restorer and healer

Reviewer and revealer

Rearer and provider

Sanctifier and purifier

Anointer and announcer

Runner and defender

Shaker and hunter

Discoverer and bearer,

Spoiler of killer

Hammer of slanderer

Dissolver of danger

Builder, not pretender.





A Heavy Pay



There is a ring

With a swing,

It does bring

A tyrant king,

They do sing

For him to swing

And his wing

Bears a string

For a sting.


So day by day

Upon our homeward way

We do pray

For the ray,

Yet troubles slay

Where we stay

And sometimes we stray

Before we lay

Thus, a heavy pay.
