Dyker Heights Christmas Lights: A Poem

Every year tucked away in the southwest of Brooklyn

Is a world full of lights and everyone’s looking

To see all the beautiful decorative homes

Bringing joy to the world with inflatable gnomes

And snowmen and angels and giant nutcrackers

All the children delighted and happy with laughter


Is this Kevin McCallister’s house?? Haha!

IMG_6626A tradition dating back to the early 1980s

Has grown even bigger and become as of lately

A time where the neighbors try to outdo each other

To have the one house that everyone covets

IMG_6638While walking past one house covered with deer

A little girl yelled, “I want to live here!”

She couldn’t contain all her joyful excitement

As she knew that she’d never forget this one moment


IMG_6654Santa patiently sits on his velvety chair

Surrounded by snowflakes and white polar bears

To listen to children all exultant with cheer

Tell him what they’d like for Christmas this year

From dollies to race cars to shiny red bikes

There seems to be nothing these children don’t like

But jolly Saint Nick is as happy as ever

To guarantee these presents delivered


IMG_6629So next time you find yourself in Dyker Heights

Make sure that you stop by these beautiful lights

As they’re sure to be something you’d not want to miss

Have a magical, wonderful Merry Christmas! IMG_6649
