Nicholas Day

There are many people here celebrating
St. Nicholas Day
Children put their shoes out last night
and found candy 
or treats waiting for them this morning.

For several years I got to celebrate in a large event
hosted by Catholic Supply of St. Louis
Hundreds came on Nicholas Eve
People brought gifts for Nicholas
to deliver to others
We would have a pile of games, toys, socks, blankets
and cash
to give to children at the St. Nicholas School in our
inner city

Whatever you celebrate
Wherever you are
I wish for you
 Light, Joy, Hope
