In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Final Trio.”
A cracked bookcase,
With loads of unread volumes.
Shelves that can barely bear the weight
Of heavy tomes.
A song book with lyrics to popular numbers.
“Pick one,” I say,
“And we’ll sing along.
It’s the time to be merry,
chirpy and bright.
Let’s sing a tuneful carol.
And welcome the season with a melody.”
