Christmas Star

Twinkle me a Christmas star
Shining from the heavín afar
Catch the glimmering star somehow
And hang it on the highest bough

Flutter me some angel wings
To bring me music plucked on strings
Some lovely angels just for me
To hang upon my Christmas tree

Sparkle me some snowy flakes
Across the field and frozen lakes
Please grab a flake in icy white
To trim a branch with crystal light

Flicker me some candle flames
To decorate the window panes
So all the world will surely know
Our home is lit in Christmas glow

Place a blessed manger scene
Here underneath the evergreen
The star will shine from up above
Upon a Child wrapped in Godís Love

The angels on the needled limbs
Will sing the joyous Christmas hymns
The hearts of loved ones gathered round,
Will marvel at the woundrous sound

Prickle me a holly wreath
With bow of red just underneath
Glitter me some cookie treats
Sprinkled with bright colored sweets

Hurry, hurry, donít be late!
The day of Christmas will not wait
Please finish all these chores because
Iím waiting here for Santa Clause!

What fun decorations! This is so good, I just may have to "borrow" it and take it to North Pole Santa Clause House...it's only a 15 minute sleigh ride from my house. Or do you have a " hard" copy with illustrations?
Email me your thoughts on this.

Such a sweet, fun, spirited poem!  I reread trying to pick out favorite lines and must admit it's every one of them.  Now I feel more like getting into my boxes of decorations I've pulled from the attic.  
Thanks,

Elizabeth,

Your poem is so lovely and tenderly written.  You've amazed me my friend.  Yep, we gotta get all those Holiday chores done to make way for the arrival of Mr. Santa Clause for sure.  Merry Christmas to you and yours.  -Bob

Marvelous - truly a wonderful piece of work! Merry Christmas to you and thank you for this poem - I'd love to read it to my nieces at Christmas with your permission!
