A foggy, freezing cold night
At the start of the new year.
After taking the dog out
For her nightly exercise.
We enter the nice, warm
Heated house. Open a
Couple of bottles of wine,
Eat nice cheeses and
Salamis with crackers.
The popular, hyped days
Of the season are gone.
But, this low key,  chilled
Out evening with my wife
Has been my most
Enjoyable time of the
Whole holiday.
New Year’s Eve is
Always an anticlimax,
It gets too built up, and
It can never satisfy, but
A quiet night in, on the
4th of January has
No expectations to live
Up to and is therefore
Much, much better than
I ever would have thought.
