Rick’s Look at Christmas Past.
Watching the cookery programes,
Of Christmas cheer, days in the past.
Nigella cooking for friendly feasts,
And RicK Stein’s Cornish repasts.
This time, some years gone by,
Not so much cooking but homespun,
Of Cornish celebrations when visiters have gone,
And Saxon Wassalling beats the drum.
Of joining in, quaffing the cider,
Or beer and Star-Gazy Pie,
Setting alight the old beacon,
Dressing up, in a dark snowy sky.
A way of remembering heritage,
And boats all lit up on the quay,
Eating, drinking and merrymaking
At Christmas time, for you and me.
