Christmas in Australia

I wonder what it would be like
To have Christmas by the sea,
To watch the waves roll in and
Eat turkey under the tree.

Instead of mistletoe,
We have bottle brush and gum.
Instead of snow ploughed fields
We have lazy days in the sun.

Christmas in Australia
I wonder how it would be
Instead of building snowman’s
We’ll have sand castles as high as can be.

I really enjoy Christmas
To share family, fun and friends
Those warm summer nights
And memories that never end

Christmas in Australia
I wonder what it would be like
I can open my eyes in the morning
To a beautiful day and sunlight.

Why not encourage your family to write a Christmas poem and send it to for publication.
