Late December Visitor




His face appears from long ago

And though his hair is whiter now

He is the same


His eyes say that all now is well

But tell the story of his life

He saw the world, he fought and fled

And wed a wife

That wasn’t right for him he says

But no regret

That  they have met


He‘ll  sail away on New Years day

Now  may he leave on New Years Eve,

The year will end with our farewell

A raven’s cry,  a nasty spell


I hope he ‘ll leave  me not till morning

And love again will be our haven

And the year will start so well
