Your letter pages often contain emotions of indignation and invective. In an endeavour to introduce feelings of a different nature, I enclose some lines for your consideration.

THE VERY SPECIAL DAY

There was a very special magic in the air when I was young,

I trembled in my bed wondering, would He come in the night!

awaking early in the morning searching the end of my bed.

rousing my Mum and Dad, shouting with excited joy.

Tumbling down the stairs to a glistening, festooned tree

laden with gaily wrapped parcels shining with white frost.

Now, though grown older, I feel that magic still.

It is present in the velvet, starry, moonlit night.

I hear it in the carols on the village green,

it surrounds me in the shining, candle-lit church

where the thundering organ bursts forth in mighty voice.

Our thoughts upon this day encompass all our friends

and look towards our Lord's birth so long ago

so we cast aside our cares and share with you

A very Happy Christmas

June and Bruce

Kennard-Simpson,

Otterton.
