Across the River from Our House...

A ten mile string of Christmas lights,

  Made a marvellous, festive, scene.

All blinking, red and orange,

Although, I did not see any green.

There was the odd one flashing blue,

Just for contrast I suppose.

It all began just after eight,

When it ended, Heaven knows.

I watched ‘till almost midnight,

Before I decided to turn in.

That’s the brighter side of freezing rain,

Highway Five was closed again!
