Christmas when I were a lad!



Christmas in Newcastle as a child,

Where wind at Whitley Bay blew wild.

A scary Santa, white buttons sewn on robe of red,

not a nice image to take to bed.

Wintry days, coal fires at full tilt,

made sure of black dots in every snowman built.

Jack Frost drew icy patterns on window pane,

excitement growing, Christmas come again.
