Crystal ice floats through the air,
Stars shimmer in the night,
The steeple in the distance
Gives off a glistening light.
Pine trees dressed in fallen snow,
Ribbons on each limb,
Colored lights of red and green,
A sleigh filled to the brim.
Plumes of smoke from chimneys,
Rise up through the sky,
Angels holding candles,
Their wings prepared to fly.
Behind the frosted windows,
A lighted Christmas tree,
Children peeking from inside,
In hopes that they might see;
Santa and his reindeer,
Passing 'fore the moon,
As the carolers in the snow,
Sing their Christmas tune.
Bayberry scents and mistletoe,
Complete this treasured scene,
On this holy Christmas eve,
This one night, so serene.

This was such a beautiful, calm Christmas picture. Very well done, Bonnie.

beautiful, Bonnie!  I fully agree with Elizabeth and Debbie on all counts!

vivid, tender, nostalgic images

it reminded me of an idea for a poem I had on Monday

I must write the gist of it down so I'll get to it one day soon

What a wonderful poem. It hit the spot today!
Thanks!

Beautiful, just beautiful!  I, too, while reading it, thought I'd love to sent a Christmas card with such colorful poetic scenery and underlying message.  Thank you for sharing this gem.
