Sunshine sleeps on these faded days,
Summer must have used up all the colour,
Greedy vibrancy that seeks to take it all;
It’s a mercy then, she didn’t think of holidays,
Else this would be a dreary place indeed.
But Christmas is winter’s little secret,
The one thing that tempts us on
To set foot into cold December.
