Ornaments of love


Now the sun a twinkle gives
while catching dew in morning's sieve
and lemons on a lemon tree
are ornaments of love to me

Here early morning December brings
skies cleaned by Santa Anaís wing
the flowing invisible angel wind
that leaves the air a sparkling

And after night and winterís chill
brings crisp and clean to the browning hills
I remember well the Christmas tree
and icicles tossed so merrily

Thrown by random hands of four
while laughter sang and fire roared.
My memory stores a family song
with mother on the piano strong

and brother somber hiding there
under the stool where he could share
the movement of the peddles fast
the soft persistent brother task

Then I would sing the carols all
so grand and loud the notes did fall
that candles flickered and gramps woke-up
and father clapped as I stood up

The memory of an angel bright
that graced the room a holy sight
made of laughter and dressed in song
so large with us the family throng

and what had made her presence known
wasnít wrapped but fully shown
by us together in a place
where love herself saw fit to grace.

Now the sun a twinkle gives
while catching dew in morning's sieve
and lemons on a lemon tree
are ornaments of love to me

Oh, Martie, this poem does paint a wonderful picture!  Never having thought of lemons at Christmas time, this verse especially leaves me thinking.

  "Now the sun a twinkle gives
while catching dew in morning's sieve
and lemons on a lemon tree
are ornaments of love to me"


I so enjoy your lovely poetry, Martie!  Merry Christmas to you Sweet One!

Well done, this has real potential it could easily become a one of those favoured classics that generations many years from now could still be enjoying reading and relaying. Well done sincerely.
