Now December's Here

Everything is "secrets"
Now December's here:
Secrets wrapped in tissue
Whispered in an ear.
Secrets big and bulky
Secrets small and slight
In the strangest places
Hidden out of sight.
Packages that rattle,
Packages that squeak
Some say "Do No Open"
Some say "Do Not Peek".
Secrets, secrets, secrets
With Christmas coming near
...except it is no secret
I wish that it were here!
