What is Christmas?

December 16, 2015

What is Christmas?
Saucer round child eyes, brimming with awe
That gaze at the setting, the wonders galore
A sparkling grotto, the big guy in red,
Surrounded by helpers - perched on his sled.

 

What is Christmas?

Breath dancing in clouds, as friends meet and greet
Wrapped gaily in warm clothes, with boots on their feet
Abusive people fighting to park
Intent on their mission, to shop until dark

 

What is Christmas?
Parties and eggnog and way too much food,
For one must partake, to decline would be rude.
Laughter, bold sweaters, old songs repeat 
Loud alcohol voices sing off key to the beat.

 

What is Christmas?
Folks gather in houses, together at last
While a solitary man cries for he’s lost in the past 
With no children nor wife and no dog at his feet
As others share good times, they’re feeling replete

 

What is Christmas?
An angel some shepherds, a night filled with stars
Three wise men with treasures – they’ve travelled afar
A stable, some cattle, a bless –ed child
His heart filled with goodness, so meek and mild
