Don’t put it all back in the attic,
that generosity that moves us to give more than we take,
the happy greetings to those we never noticed before,
the desire to be with those we love
even though they are annoying
Don’t put it all away with the baubles and ornaments.
The spirit of Christmas was never meant to last
just one day of the year.
Let’s hang onto it for a few more days at least
we will become the world
we all can live in together
