Holiday for Empathy

As the snow falls in the northern world

And the gifts packed under the fir are unfurled

Let it be known what it is today

Let the joy for all be on display

Your hearts, I hope to touch

While I know this small verse won’t be much

To all: Let empathy take over the mind

So it can treat our fellow humankind

And without any more delays

Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays.
