Poetry Pleases: Five Senses At Christmas

You need all five senses to experience the best of Christmas, as June Digby reveals.

Sight

White frosty world, with glitter shimmering everywhere,
Excited children and shoppers seriously intent on purchase,
Sun low on horizon in an orange-splashed sky.

Touch

Fingers, some ungloved and icy,
Soft kisses on cool cheeks,
Hot liquid sliding down the throat
To warm parts difficult to reach.

Hearing

Leaves crunching underfoot, no birdsong in the trees,
Carol singers and Christmas songs and
Church bells calling in different keys.

Smell and Taste

Pine trees, cinnamon, sherry,
Fruit and roasting meat.

A medley of experiences
To make Yuletide complete.
