Taking a Break for the Holidays
December 17, 2013

Taking a break for the Holidays
To spend time with family—
A diff’rent kind of hussle,
A diff’rent kind of bustle,
A diff’rent kind of energy.

I need a break from these books, you see,
And all this mental tussle
I’ve been going through,
And I hope that you
Can understand that, dear Russell.

I need to hear the sound of wrapping paper rustle
And sing carols ‘til I’m blue
To honor the day
In a manger, He lay
In hopes that my spirit’s renewed.

‘Tis the only way I can see myself through
In hopes for a better day—
Not just for me,
But you, too, you see,
So let me enjoy Christmas Day.

Well, that should do it. Thank you all for stopping by for my second-to-last “Poem of the Week” for 2013, and please fell free to visit my author pages at Smashwords.com, Amazon.com, and Amazon.co.uk when you have the chance. Until next week, then, Happy Holidays and happy reading!

Regards,
Dustin M. Weber
