Escher My Tree!

Bond of Union, 1956, by M. C. Escher


jingle my bell
call me Merry
Santa Claus or Holly Berry
hang me on the Christmas tree
facing you ~ (please look at me)
let's escape these spiral traps
don our hats and boots and wraps
toddle off to magic land
live our life as we had planned

  15. Ha! I just hope you are singing a lot as you have a lovely voice. I feel so far from Christmas. The end of the year is very busy in my work life (sigh.) Take care, K.
