Under the Mistletoe

Sitting under the mistletoe
(Pale-green, fairy mistletoe),
One last candle burning low,
All the sleepy dancers gone,
Just one candle burning on,
Shadows lurking everywhere:
Some one came, and kissed me there.

Tired I was; my head would go
Nodding under the mistletoe
(Pale-green, fairy mistletoe),
No footsteps came, no voice, but only,
Just as I sat there, sleepy, lonely,
Stooped in the still and shadowy air
Lips unseen - and kissed me there.

~Walter de la Mare

I just fell in love with this little girl and her cheeky expression. She still has a sense of joy from being young and not having
to worry about things like mortgages and cheap health insurance. She is definitely up
for some fun under the mistletoe!
