The Monkey is approaching!

I hear the shops playing Chinese New Year songs,

While lively jingle bells is still playing;

I hear the distant sounds of breaking branches,

And realize the Monkey is fast approaching!

The Chinese New Year spirit is in the air,

And shops are selling Chinese New Year décor;

The Christmas tree has been safely put away –

Time to buy rhyming couplets for the door.

Chinese New Year goodies are already on sale.

They are quite expensive – shall I go JB?

May be I could bake my signature Marie cake –

But wait! I think I have lost the recipe!

The incumbent Goat is ready to exit,

While the Chinese New Year countdown goes on;

The happy Monkey will soon make his entrance,

While we look forward  to more babies born.
