Now the sun a twinkle gives
while catching dew in morning's sieve
and lemons on a lemon tree
are ornaments of love to me

Here early morning December brings
skies cleaned by Santa Anaís wing
the flowing invisible angel wind
that leaves the air a sparkliní
And after night and winterís chill
brings crisp and clean to the browning hills

I remember well the Christmas tree
and icicles tossed so merrily
thrown by random hands of four
while laughter sang and fire roared.

My memory stores a family song
with mother on the piano strong
and brother somber hiding there
under the stool where he could share
the movement of the peddles fast
the soft persistent brother task

Then I would sing the carols all
so grand and loud the notes did fall
that candles flickered and gramps woke-up
and father clapped as I stood up

The memory of an angel bright
that graced the room a holy sight
made of laughter and dressed in song
so large with us the family throng
and what had made her presence known
wasnít wrapped or given but fully shown
by us together in a place
where love herself saw fit to grace.

Now the sun a twinkle gives
while catching dew in morning's sieve
and lemons on a lemon tree
are ornaments of love to me

Another fine offering with a wonderful view. You paint a fine picture. It also sounds as if you're in my neck of the woods... So. Cal. Those Santa Anas run pretty stong through Redlands.

Martie, this is precious
