In the early morning,
As the dawn breaks,
A dusting of snow,
Covers the parched earth,
The turkey and pumpkin smells linger,
The peace of this holiday endures,
At least for me.

As the dawn breaks,
There are merchants,
Finishing and starting the first
Of many 12+ hour shifts,
Wiping sleepiness from their eyes,
Listening to complaints,
Providing service to shoppers,
Stressing over the month ahead,
The peace of this holiday is elusive
At least for now.
