Saint Nicolas’ Arrival

This year, the holy man came by plane

Protesters; Amnesty International came

None of this, is practical or sane

Saint Nicolas & helpers do deserve fame



The first dark day of November

More Summersun than I can remember

Did I see this month ~ strange it is

Now water replaces the Sunlight dosis


Like September

People sitting outdoors, these sunny days

Most trees still fairly green, this November

Nothing reminds us of Winter

No mist, daytime darkness or frost days



What’s not to love about this

Ultimate example of human genius

Yet, we don’t want to choke in the bliss’

Leftovers and indestructable surplus
