Dependant from draped boughs of green
festooned with baubles bright ,
Aloft o'er cherished manger scene
on cotton snow of white .
Our hopes reflect as twinkling stars
resplendantly to glow ,
reflected in the eyes of those
we've gathered close for 'lo...

The figurines unpacked again
now take their rightful place ,
as if brought forth to testify
our homes and hearths they grace ,
as joyous sounds of voices raised
in animation swell ,
and peals of laughter ring out loud
"Sleigh Ride" , and " Silver Bells "...


Play softly in pine scented air
and help maintain this spell ,
when peace bestows for moment brief
the sense that all is well .
Too soon lament the cycles end
when all is packed away ,
stowed safe within our hearts again
until next Christmas day ...

And yet surely some echo faint
remains when thoughts are clear ,
dependant now upon ourselves
to bring to this New Year .

Doc, when I see your name, I wait for the punch line...

but this time, it is a splendid line indeed, and the warmth emanates from someone wonderful...

you...

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

Hey this was wonderful! I loved it!!!!!!!
The title is great too!



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I hate your socks. I'd like to burn them!
