Ladened boughs hold the snow,
and the season can begin.
for the falling shadows know,
that itís Christmas time again.

Silver bells and stockings hung,
glistening prints on windowpanes,
wishes rest on every tongue,
every child's promise reigns.

Delighted voices, frozen creeks,
all the sleds on every hill,
and upon the rosy cheeks,
burn the magic and the thrill.

Locomotives, choo choo trains,
the simplicity of giving,
Mistletoe and drawing names,
and a time to be forgiving.

In the distance, one star shines
to remind us what it means.
Itís the constant of all signs,
and outlives all other scenes.

Itís all wrapped within the sky,
ringing with the silver bells,
itís a presence drawing nigh,
to our hearts, where Christmas dwells.




"When red-haired girls scamper like roses
over the rain-green grass,
and the sun drips honey.""
Laurie Lee

A beautiful poem! Makes me want christmas NOW!



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!

I appreciate knowing that others feel the feeling I had when I wrote this last year. You know, I have only done one or two poems about Christmas and I don't know why.  Maybe b/c it's just such a personal feeling and yet so universal.  Thank you for letting me know you read this.
