“The Brightest Christmas”

Is this year’s Christmas the brightest Christmas
I have ever seen? It definitely seems more radiant

With all these lights wherever you go — blue and orange,
Red and green. Yellow and gold and silver and white.

And that most enchanting of all the colors — purple.
The Capitol is brightly lit each night with these fairy-tale like lights.

And the streets are adorned with the cheeriest stars and lanterns.
And that giant Christmas tree that stands proudly inside

The Fuente Rotunda, that is the grandest and prettiest Christmas tree
I have ever seen, and I have seen very many. Have the city finally

Prospered? Have the people turned more gay? Or have I changed?
For ever since we had our babies, one almost 1 and the other

Almost 3, we have become much younger, and with our boy
And with our girl, our eyes are now easily filled with wonder.
