I’ve been deciphering the days,
All twelve of them.
Hot here where it should be cold,
Stinging in the suns rays.
The nights are long
And the days are longer,
We are lost in a tangle of cold wine,
Heads spinning with Christmas song.
Our trees are plastic pine,
Covered in tinsel twine.
Throws of glittering gold,
Flashes of scarlet,
A symphony of silver,
Sparkling through windows for all to behold.
Don’t think too little of us without our snow,
Because we are just as festive as you, you know.
Slightly odd to celebrate the ice in fire,
But Christmastime in Australia I will forever admire.
