As empty stomachs lead to irritation,
Particularly bad for conversation,
Prone to undermine a festive mood.
Yet holidays with food can often be
Helpful in maintaining a relation,
Offering a timely celebration,
Locus for extended family.
In holidays a temporary junction
Delays eventual disintegration
As generation follows generation,
Years of culinary dedication
Sensing well the beauty of its function.
Holidays Predate the Dawn of Dawn
Holidays predate the dawn of dawn,
A time before time started on its road,
Perambulating forward, always forward,
Perpetually ignorant of the end.
Yet once they were with great precision drawn,
Having been both calendar and ode,
Of a time when time went ever toward,
Lilting round each long-familiar bend.
In our time, they're used mostly to adorn
Days not strong enough to bear the load --
A dinner, store-bought gifts, an ancient word,
Yet nothing that would help one comprehend
Such joy as long ago was life's reward.
