The Merriest

This has been my standard Christmas wish for some years, but it does still very much apply, and hell, it's worked for June Christy since 1961.

I'd like to fix this bag of tricks
And hand'em out with a fleeting greeting:
Smiles for the frowners
Saluts to the uppers
Boosts for the downers
May the day be the bowl-of-cherriest,
And to all, the merriest.

Hope you swing during the season
Hope the days go great
Hope you find plenty of reasons
The whole year long to celebrate.
Sun for the mopers
A laugh for the criers
Luck for the hopers
To the strange and the ordinariest
Me to you, the merriest!

Thoughts for the musers
A cheer for the winners
Breaks for the losers
To the beats and the debonairiest
Greetings like the merriest!

Hope there's oil under your rose vine
Hope you get that raise
Hope you hope everything goes fine
The next three hundred and some-odd days!

Friends for the loners
Songs for the singers
Grins for the groaners
Make the day nothing-can-compariest
At the most, the merriest!
