The Twelve Days of Christmas 2010-2011


DAY TEN

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A BRIGHT AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR

Welcome to the third year's celebration (2010-2011) of The 'Twelve Days of Christmas' here at Lunch Break

On the 10th day of Christmas my true love gave to me Ten Lords A-leaping


gathering birdsong--
first Monday
of the new year

First shadows
on the way home-
New Year moon
-- Vasile Moldovan


New Year's snow -
last night's cinders
fill the fireplace
--Cristina-Monica Moldoveanu


New Year Eve-
the early bird
goes to sleep early
--devika



little children
going back to school...
new beginnings
--Keith Simmonds




Ten Lords A-leaping - The ten commandments: You shall have no other gods before me; Do not make an idol; Do not take God's name in vain; Remember the Sabbath Day; Honor your father and mother; Do not murder; Do not commit adultery; Do not steal; Do not bear false witness; 0 Do not covet.

Nice sets, Gillena :)

New Year Eve-
the early bird
goes to sleep early

devika

The bird song..."Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise"

May 2011 find us healthy and wise...wealthy as much as we need be, to remain wise and conscientious,

wishes,
devika

they're both delicious, same rythmn but different, wow

Gillena Cox said...

...i know that rhyme Dev and to add a corollary - the early bird catches the juiciest worm

...agreed Lorraine "Delicious"

... to you both; Have a nice day

Devika said...

eehhh....worms...i hate the wiggly wriggly things...I would rather like the birds to sleep more and have seeds, grains and nectar :)

but like the corollary, Gillena....that says about health of the early risers :)

wishes,
devika
