Trading footied excitement 
For generous garb
The joy shifts 
deeper within
Once wide-eyed toddlers
Now large-hearted 
and grown
Elicit a smile again
The season has shifted
But the anchor of joy
Holds us fast
To wonder each year
We’re all a bit older
And life marches on
But the joy
Of the season’s still here
