We’re ending the year on a few high notes, and we hope you are, too.

We wrote a poem that was published on the Musa Publishing blog, and we’re delighted to share it with you!

What is it About?

Is it the lights on the tree?
The shy kid on Santa’s knee?
Is it the wreath on the door?
The festive rugs on the floor?

Is it the smile in your heart?
The red macaroni art?
Is it hot cocoa and pie?
The shining stars in the sky?

It is whatever you think,
And is gone quick as a blink,
It will stay when you believe
’tis better to give than receive.

Wishing you joy, prosperity, an endless supply of good books, and a healthy, happy, and wonderful 2014.
