Christmas Lists

What I would like for Christmas:

. an old Jaguar MK2—so I could hang a jaunty wreath from the hood ornament
. a pure soprano voice, with which to join the university church choir
. stripy legwarmers and slouch socks
. an autumn in Mallorca, to see the saffron crocuses in bloom
. to give our cottage passive solar heat
. a half a dozen Yorkshire curd tarts
. shade trees, or even one, in which to hang a temple bell
. to find a long, newsy letter from Shakespeare tucked into an old book
. to be imperturbable
. to be unfailingly kind
. joy, oh joy, for all the world
