Gaudete

Christmas is almost here

As they lit the third candle on the advent wreath

Nativity plays are being practiced

Down in school halls up and down the land as

Lit number of candles is three

Excitement is building – the lords almost here!

In their finest

Salford, 9th January 2019

On a Sunday morning,

In the bright sunshine

You’ll see them all

In their finest

Taking a walk

With husband or wife

Along with the children,

Escaping the strife

No work for the blacksmith

The shops are all closed

They’ve all been to church

So a walk is proposed

And while making their way

To the local town fair

Some humbugs and sweets

The family will share

As mum and dad rest

In their boaters and hats

The children play games

With the balls and their bats
