The magic of Christmas..inspired by Artur

The fairy lights are twinkling
each one a child's dream
and each one sleeps
and wonders about
the magic he or she will see
As Santa creeps about their beds
and listens to their dreams
he gets requests of love
and not trains
strange as it seems
or maybe they'll be arms
held out
looking for a hug
and not the doll
with classic face
as many girls dream of
He spends too long
seeing through their smiles
to give the time and gift
that each child
will remember
when as a parent
they look back
and say
"Close your eyes and dream
a while, for Santa will arrive
and when he does
the gift he leaves
depends upon your smile"

If only...

Thank heavens we can smile, children grow up to be us and I'm proud to say, I live within my dreams, I hope and long for my wishes and I live inside my heart...

Sweet dreams all

I am really sorry I missed this one - it was by perchance that I ran across this one, just as my friend was asking me to show her some poems, and I found this not too far from one of my poems. I am sorry, I repeat, sorry that I missed this poem. It is the first time that someone has written a poem because I inspired him/her, but this is better than I expected to receive as a first inspiration from someone! I am leaving netpoets, and tonight is my final night - I am checking the announcements tomorrow for what the others said anyway, just to be fair and give my last thanks.

Who cares if my name's spelled wrong! I have seen many others do that. It is spelled A-R-T-U-R in the book I am reading, but he's a king too, similar to the Arthur of Camelot.

This is a very eloquent piece for your style of writing, to which I confess I really like, and I miss being a child where fairy tales seemed a reality. This is the magic of Christmas, since Santa has miraculously made many kids smile (anyway!).

I hope this one doesn't escape you, the way it escaped me.

Sweet dreams to you
Hope to hear from you again in a month or two!

HUGS
