I WILL OPEN THE DAY

present

I will open the day like a present

waiting under the Tree on Christmas morn

and with eager heart behold each moment

I will open the day like a present

impressed with the giver’s thought and good intent

Though routine would soon have its magic shorn

I will open the day like a present

waiting under the Tree on Christmas morn.

My day would have gone on in its ordinary course except that, some moments ago, we heard the squeal of car breaks working frantically and failing.  At the end of a long squeal, we heard a crash.   When we looked out into the road, we saw the back end of a car parked two houses away from us crumpled with its bumper guards on the ground.  A few feet away, on the lawn of the house on the opposite side of the road, the offending car sat, its back totaled, and its front pushing the street  sign at an angle.  Right now, four police cars and a fire truck block the road.  At least,  no one seemed to have been hurt.
