Gifts From The Heart
~ Marge Tindal~ 1999

'Twas the week before Christmas
and all over the place,
people hurried and scurried about
trying to win the shopping race.

What to get for Grandma?
Just what would Mother need?
What in the world to get a friend?
I had to work with speed.


Suddenly it up and hit me
I declare I never knew,
I'd give them words
right from my heart,
Why, that's what I would do.

So I sat with pen in hand,
the words flowed fast and free.
I told them all
how much I loved them
and that felt good to me.


I printed the words
and wrapped each one,
with just a holiday flair.
When they opened the gift
and read what I wrote,
there wasn't a dry eye there.

Sometimes in the busy world
we forget to make the time
to tell someone we love them,
and it doesn't cost a dime.


So if your budget's stretched,
and your wallet's feeling thin,
put your feelings on paper
for just the cost of a pen.

I guarantee your gift
will be their favorite one.
You will feel the love
come back long before you're done.


When you give the gift,
wrap it with a hug and a kiss.
They may squirm with the familiarity,
but it's a gift they wouldn't miss.

They will surely try
to give you that hug back.
Please take it if you're wise.
Take that hug and you will see,
it fits most every size.


*Now isn't that a wonderful gift
to give and to receive?

We think alike.
My family is getting poetry for Christmas.
I think they'll like it

What a grand idea.  I especially like the line:"They will surely try
to give you that hug back.
Please take it if you're wise."
Sometimes we forget that.

Marge,
The adults I'll give verse ploys,
But the children must get toys.
A wonderful poem *L*

Marge - any words from your heart are precious for your family - including your family here. This is a great poem - and should be a direct order for all our poets!

What could be a better present Marge--The gift that not only comes from heart but is heart.

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

Marge, you have a heart of gold....and it comes in such an attractive container!   Merry Christmas to you and yours!

 To the world you might be just one person but to one person you might just be the world.

Hearts Of Gold

To each of you, my friends,
this wish from my heart.


Elizabeth -
Health and Happiness
to richly touch your heart.


Sraet -
Joy beyond compare ...
in the hug you share.


Denise -
Wonderful friends
to see you through ...
lots of hugs
and kisses too.

Wonderful stories
of your prose ...
given with love
and fragrance of rose.


Hoot -
The greatest gift
under the tree ..
a poem to them
just from thee.


Pepper -
Precious words
from your pen ...
would be more
than enough for them.


Seymour -
Toys, of course
for the little ones ...
Poems from you
would charm anyone.

Double posting
or rolling smiles ...
gift enough
from you, dear child.

Heart of hearts
we agree ...
one for you
and one for me.


Balladeer -
Hearts of gold
are treasured dear.
Never more
than ~sweet Balladeer~.
