Transformed!
A home of everyday decor,
Into a Christmas wonderland,
With angels and santas,
Forty-six snowmen,
Wreaths, roping,
and bows tied by hand.

Miniature sleighs,
A tree decorated all aglow,
Glass snowballs, music boxes,
and sparkling plastic snow,
A tiny town, and of course,
The prized nativity scene,
The refrigerator's covered with magnets,
red, white, and green.

I'm exhausted now,
But I know it will
Have all been quite worthwhile,
When that little five-year old walks in,
With such wonderment in his smile.

I echo that!
Yes kids can make our days with simple words or expression.
great poem!



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!

Liz,

Thank you for reading. Yes...I believe our Christmases as they are now are mainly for the children, and it's wonderful to see their rapture!

Dopey Dope,

Thank you also for reading. Aren't kids great?...they can cheer you up in just a smile.

Thanks again to you both,

Kris

Isn't it wonderful when you see the magic begin in a child's eyes...

a most precious sight...

even better when we can take it with us into adulthood...

as you have...

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