Christmas Time Poem

Christmas Time

Terri Bonow

December 2013

 

Jolly old saint nick

said he’d arrive

Christmas night

 

I look forward to that generous elf

arriving in red with Christmas wealth

 

But I feel the cold

know and remember well wintery tales

so old

 

Somehow the cycle turns a new

each year- it’s unique

 

The short days,

spiritual ways

and yearnings

 

They announce

the shortest days

and longest nights

 

The power of Jesus

the birth so righteous

brings us around

 

To the fold, to hold

all that is true in our

souls

 

We gather together

feel the magic all around

eat, hug, and share

 

With green trees so fragrant

lights so very pleasant

 

Packages colorful, bright

and shared with such delight

 

The songs played purely

so together, so surely

 

Christmas time

It is theirs, yours, and mine

 

We remember the season

about love, joy, and being kind.
