Only Once

snowy transition
 back into reality
 of colored lights
 
 countdown to Christmas
 begins with old-enough girls
 who now string the tree
 
 where did the time go?
 (when on the Polar Express
 we sipped hot cocoa)
 
 with these bright sparkles
 another year of youth gone
 like flakes from the sky
