Santa Fe Christmas


Farolitos on Christmas eve

the most beautiful night I believe

cider by the bonfire

singing with the choir


hot burritos

and people launching

starbound farolitos

lighting the way

for the infant Christ

the luminous path inticed

from bonfire song to bonfire song

we wander the lighted path and sing along

until the chill sinks in our bones

and we know it’s time to go home

to wake on Christmas morn

to the Christ child being born
