RSVP/ Poetry Potluck #16


I WELCOME Poetry Potluck #16. THIS WEEK we are tempted to write about CELEBRATIONS!!  FESTIVITIES!!  And why not...'tis the season...


RSVP

An unexpected promise of revelry
is slipped under the door,
an elegant card handwritten
with time and place to attend.

Any invitation to celebrate
is welcomed as I stir
within the winter solstice,

when icy ribbons
tie up the horizon
from the edge of December,
till the beckoning of spring.

Here's my grateful RSVP:

Thanks for one more party,
to gather at the hearth,
to hold close a friend and sip a toddy,
help drive old winter away.

Since carousing is indicated,
I'll be dressed to kill.

I can just imagine the party goers gathered around the hearth holding their toddy's. Haven't come across the word toddy in a long time if not years.

I like the idea of being dressed to kill. That's the only drawback to invitations - what shall I wear??!!!
