Merry Christmas!!

Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the house
Not a creature was stirring,
Not my son nor my spouse.

The stockings were hung, 
The tree was well-lit.
Now it's time to relax
And read for a bit.

So many choices,
What should I pick?
The birth of a babe,
Or Jolly Saint Nick?

Perhaps something different
Like a nice cozy thriller,
A memoir, some poems,
Or a spine-tingling chiller.

Maybe some stories
From Arabian Nights?
Annie Proulx or Sue Grafton?
Stephen King for some frights?

No matter the choice, 
There's one wish indeed---
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL
AND TO ALL A GREAT READ!!
