One is six, the other three years old.
It’s been a busy day and they are tired,
but not tired enough to give in.
Now, there is a feeling of renewed energy
as they realise it’s growing dark.
There is a moon
and a few stars have appeared.
Christmas lights are beginning to twinkle.
It is not Christmas yet.
Not for weeks.
It’s only the garden centre
in advertising mode
dressing itself up
showing off its new seasonal wares.
The two boys
in the dark,
watching the lights,
Christmas has begun.
