The good old days we celebrated Christmas in relative poverty with so much fun.

My Nostalgic Christmas

by Joseph C Ogbonna

I heard an old old Christmas song

sung by grandma on Christmas eve.

It wasn't in good stanzas long,

but it did the joyous times retrieve.

It gladdened my heart which did grieve

over all I thought I'd done wrong,

and could not annually achieve.

It did convey emotions strong

of joyous moments to relive:

Modest gifts, traditional meals

and the sweet scent of warmth that heals.

Contented in want we all shared

whilst our affections showed we cared.

All on our humble home converged,

in living rooms hardly enlarged.

To drink and eat cheap wine and food,

in unrivaled ecstasy and mood.
