With apologies to Bing Crosby and Irving Berlin...
Dreaming of a Green Christmas
Ol' Bing had it wrong when he sang his song dreamin' of Christmas snow.
After the wreck of '13, I'm hopin' for green grass this Christmas, ya know.
No startin' each day loadin' the hay and haulin' it out to the sheep -
Let the rain come, followed by sun; gimme lotsa grass that's knee-deep!
By far, the shortest Christmas poem I've ever written, and certainly not the best - but it's been that kind of year! Here's hoping that 2015 brings an end to our drought!
