Images of Christmas (Ian M. Roure) I fell into an old instamatic snap Through the dyes and emulsions to Christmas past The stereo played Winter Wonderland As the reel to reel turned, rum & cokes in hand Christmas cards tucked into the beams Toasting the things we’d hoped would be Sitting with George & Audrey & Grandma Lucy Those lost to us now Are all found inside these Images of Christmas Greeting you at the door is your auntie Rose She’s the queen of the party, and she knows… Dressed in our gifted finery, Watching the Queen on the T.V. Send out the searching party; bring the Bacardi, Saint Bernard & cask ‘Cause I’m lost inside these Images of Christmas Evening at the Ericson’s, after supper’s done Doreen played the ivories and carols they wuz sung… Dressed in our gifted finery, Watching the Queen on the T.V. Send out the searching party; bring the Bacardi, Saint Bernard & cask ‘Cause I’m lost inside these Images of Christmas

Mr. Winters 03:19
Mr. Winters (Ian M Roure) Summer recedes and so the Autumn brings the sweet and bitter, the cuddle and the shiver And one day you find you're forced to greet the new arrival; the transition is final Mr. Winters, Mr. Winters, won't you please be so kind - Mr. Winters, Mr. Winters, show us what's on your mind Keeping the faith through new eyes you follow the younger vision, and fill in the omissions And you see the last reign so much closer than the first, you'd prefer it reversed Mr. Winters you're on time Arriving on the cold December tide Mr. Winters come what May please make a little Summer stay...
