nights razzle city

lights dazzle pretty

merry Christmastide

fairy carriage ride

trees displayed there

seen in market square

river shines reflection

mirrors celebration

dragon in fountain

shadow of mountain

steeple tickles sky

people trickle by

carolers swell song

cathedral bells gong

haze glows of gaslight

maze lit  til midnight

    we have nothing like your Christmas market here, Lynn. It’s strange living in a city where people have to drive forever and don’t know who is next to you on the street. I love the ‘community’ implied in your poem.

    A wonderful jingle of a poem.

    I would so love to be caught in that razzle… but it was such a long time since I looked forward to a Christmas… maybe I need to indulge in the joy… let loose in the dazzle.

    Nice to see you razzling and dazzling, Lynn! How wonderful that you’ve described the Christmas market. which they were just finishing setting up the day we arrived and by the last evening the lights were on, stalls were selling food and the ‘train ride’ was up and running, And the cathedral bells were ringing! You’ve packed everything so beautifully into your poem!
