Christmas Card from A World Traveller
We sailed from Rome one hot sunny day
Cocktails, coronas, ate food all the way
For a week, round the balmy blue Med.
And then, theres the rugby the boys said.
So onto a train-(quick, hurry-can't be late)
To watch our boys play-it really was great,
Then to Florence, St David and a wee bit of shopping
On to Venice, by train, without stopping
Where we did what people told us we oughta
Rode on a gondola on streets that were water
A band played while we sat and had drinks in a square
Then by boat to the airport – we were pleased to get there.
Then off to a very hot place called Dubai
And up a tall building that reached to the sky
Then we rode on a camel on very soft sand
Belly danced with a lady (but not from that land.)
Now once more it’s the time when Christmas is here
So hope this wee poem will bring some good cheer
To a wonderful lady called Jo in a shop
Who arranged it all for us so it all went non stop.
