Poem: Momma's Christmas Wish

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Momma's Christmas wish is a poem about her being fed up with the coronavirus frenzy. The chairs at her table sit empty this year. So she hopes at least Old Saint Nick can make it down the chimney to keep her company.

Momma's Christmas Wish

Momma is fed up with this coronavirus frenzy

with love ones not allowed to gain entry,

seeing the chairs at the table sit empty

she hopes old Saint Nick

can at least make it down the chimney.


She takes a sip of brandy

snapping a quick selfie,

sending it off to Santa

showing him milk and cookies,

hoping he will hurry.


She makes a wish upon a penny,

waiting patiently

for Santa’s company

to make her feel warm and cozy,

hoping for a blizzard warning

so he can stay until the wee hours of the morning.
