The Gift

Curled up round a raggy doll,
A sleeping tousled head,
Blanketed in baby dreams,
Soundly in her bed,
Stockings hung in reverence,
Hoping to be blessed,
Milk and cookies waiting,
For a special guest,
Snowflakes softly whisper,
Against her window pane,
Verdant holly heaven,
Adorned with silver rain,
Footfalls in the hallway,
Creaking bedroom door,
Shadows dance in firelight,
On her bedroom floor,
Gifts for her a plenty,
Carefully conveyed,
Then onto her sleeping head,
A hand is softly laid,
"God bless you little angel",
"May your dreams come true",
"The greatest gift I can bestow",
"Is peace and joy to you",
And In her sleep she heard the sound,
That all good children Know,
Of sleigh bells song, and laughter,
Receeding in the snow.

Olias...I remember that night...

If I whisper, will you listen?...
I would rather be silent and write, then speak loudly and be bound.

OLIAS~
Absolutely ADORABLE !

Precious memories -

Then onto her sleeping head,
A hand is softly laid,
"God bless you little angel",
"May your dreams come true",
"The greatest gift I can bestow",
"Is peace and joy to you"


Oh, makes this mommy's heart swell with remembering.
Thank you for sharing this moment of joy.

Liz, This was almost a throw away when I started to write it, but it kinda took hold of me and shook me by the throat, glad you like the results. Thanks for posting.

Coco  My thanks to you for your kind response, I must listen to my femine side alot more ( makes for better writing ), no sexism intended.

Regards to both of you and take care,

I love this poem.

Then onto her sleeping head,
A hand is softly laid,
"God bless you little angel",
"May your dreams come true",
"The greatest gift I can bestow",
"Is peace and joy to you"

Thank you.




Love is the law, love under will.

I wasn't in the spirit of the season as much as I could have been, I am now, thank you!

What is that you express in your eyes? It seems to me more than all the words I have read in my life.
