This poem was inspired by Bing Crosby’s White Christmas, from the movie. 🙂 Merry Christmas those of you who celebrate, and happy holidays to everyone else.
The static of Bing on the radio
swallows the silence of the sitting room
like the fizz of the crackling fire
as it smolders the logs of maple wood.
I wonder if that’s how he felt singing
on the stage of Paramount Studios,
surrounded by boys dressed up like soldiers
and mortar bombs dropping in the background.
