Attic debris

One day I chanced on old debris.
The remains of a Christmas tree.
And I stood in thoughtful stare,
At all the things that were there.

Memories played on every view,
Each object gave a special clue.
The remnants and the bric-a-brac,
Brought flashes of memory back.

It was a pleasant pause for me,
The presents and the Christmas tree.
Remembered looks of happiness,
Each present, a huge success.

The warmest of togetherness,
And warmer as the years progress,
And though we keep in touch I fear,
Distance seems to grow each year.

I keep the remnants and the tree,
Useless things, oh except to me.
I visit them when I am near,
It's always Christmas up here.

As nostalgic a rendering
as I'd hope to find.
Hidden also
in the attic of my mind.

*Beautiful, Seymour

Denice,
I thanked you once,
I thanked you twice,
And now I'll have to make it thrice.
Good night and sweet dreams.
Marge,
A lovely comment, from a lovely person.

Attics cherished memory
Could never be a small debris
Debris is what is thrown away
memories are here to stay
I note I've used that never word
I never thought I'd ever heard
And never would I contradict
A poet's poet's word he picked
So never mind, i'll never find find
A finer word inside my mind
No better word than small debris
It fits the verse just perfectly

Would that I were a small debris
A piece of tinsled Christmas tree
Would that I were forgotten bough
A small debris remember now
In attic's dusty shadowed light
At one time donned with Christmas lights
Would that I be the small debris
Described in poets epopee
Remembrance of his Christmas joys
And wonderment of Christmas toys
A bought to make his teardrops swell
Remembered long, remembered well

Hoot,
Thank you so much.
Elizabeth,
I love your gergarious style,
It stays me such a long, long while.
Full of sweet and honey dipped phrase
My heart goes wild my mind a daze.
A child with sweets I would have more.
And in you words I do. Seymour
