Jingle Bells Song: Post Merry Christmas Sentiments

Jingle bells, Jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh what fun,
It is to ride,
In a one-horse open sleigh
Dashing through the snow
On a one-horse open sleigh,
Over the fields we go,
Laughing all the way
Bells on bobtails ring,
Making spirits bright,
What fun it is to laugh and sing
A sleighing song tonight,
(Oh! )
Jingle bells, Jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh what fun
It is to ride
On a one-horse open sleigh

Another Face By Ray A. Young Bear (Tama, Iowa)

This rock halfway out of the snow
turns away from the daylight
and cradles small blue footprints
into his stomach.
At night, they mark the snow again
keeping close to the rock.

Bus Stop By Donald Justice

lights are burning
in quiet rooms
where lives go on
resembling ours.
The quiet lives
that follow us-
These lives we lead
But do not own-
Stand in the rain
so quietly,
when we are gone,
so quietly.
And the last bus
comes letting dark
Umbrellas out-
Black flowers, black flowers.
And lives go on,
And lives go on
Like sudden lights
At street corners.
or Like the lights
In quiet rooms,
Left on for hours,
Burning, burning.

The Confession

No shame,
There is nothing to fear,
you have crossed many rivers,
your footsteps are strong.
Veiled in silence you've sworn to,
you don't work for recongnition,
No barried stop you, no strings attached,
You're a golden star.
Out of smoke you flee,
Into blind woods you go under the tree,
Street life is not what you need to be free,
On a lone road, you rise, joyful and gay.
