Dr. Taylor had fun creating a couple poems for recent blogs to wish all readers a happy and healthy holiday season. Due to the number of requests for copies, both poems are included in this issue of SynapSez®.
Happy Holidays - December 25, 2017
It’s the 25th and all through the house
There’s gratitude brewing—no fire to dowse.
My stocking hangs from the mantle with care,
Which means one foot is still going bare.
The sun peeking through a few drops of rain
Makes hope for snowflakes somewhat in vain.
But the luscious smells of food on the air
Carry great expectations for holiday fare.
Wherever you are and whatever you do,
I’m sending good thoughts to be with you.
Take time to add to your memory’s store,
With hugs and fun and laughter galore.
Remember that when all is said and done,
What really counts are the hearts you have won.
So from my brain and each little cell,
I wish you a very Happy Noel.
Happy New Year – January 1, 2018
It’s actually New Year’s and all through the house,
Excitement is high—of course there’s no mouse!
Just the sound of my brain texting, “Old year is past,
Imagine new opportunities vast.”
My stocking once hung from the mantle with care,
Is back on the foot that was formerly bare.
The sun shining brightly has dispelled the fog—
A very good thing as it looked like eggnog!
Another good meal is about to be served,
From leftovers that were carefully preserved.
The reheated dishes from holiday fare
Account for the wonderful smells in the air.
It’s been a very productive year,
And I’m sure we’ll do even more, no fear.
As life is uncertain with no guarantee,
Please know how I value what you are to me.
Make time to remember, take time to renew,
It’s a brand new page for the you-who-is-you!
So here is my wish for this upcoming year—
Spend quality time with those you hold dear.
