My Christmas wish came true last night
When she appeared – oh what a sight!
In scarlet gown with edge of snow
And in her hair, a crimson bow
With lingerie of festive red
And playful antlers on her head
With brown doe eyes and luring smile
My heart stopped beating for a while
For she was beauty in all her trappings
Then – oh my God – she removed the wrappings!
Words can’t express my childish delight
When my Christmas wish came true last night

Icarus: Favourite Love Poems
This creative collection, now in its 2nd edition, brings together love poems by Wayne Visser. The anthology traces love’s agony (“Broken Dreams”) and ecstasy (“Galaxies Cart-Wheeling”), from first blush (“Almost Strangers”) to full bloom (“Say ‘I Do!’”), as we fly to love. You’ve given me the gift of golden wings / The endless sphere of blue imaginings / The chance to rise above the silver clouds / The will to cast off untold ghostly shrouds / Don’t fly too high / Don’t rise too fast / Don’t tease the sky / Don’t taunt the past / You’ve given me the hope of warmer days / The blessed kiss of the sun’s fiery rays.
