CHRISTMAS SHARING!


Its freezing ice chills out there
This winter…this December
To go out, I didn’t dare
Clouds of snow surround my house
But in, I warm my icy toes
A Christmas tree with jingling bells
Magic everywhere spreading its spells
A shining silver star hung on top
And Christmas carols in every snowdrop

While warm and cozy I lay near the fire
At distance I see a girl longing for fire
I open my door to look at her
And in turn she smiles, warmer than fire
Her icy toes and icy nose
Numb hands and pale face
Made me invite her in and show some fire,
And let her have Christmas just like mine

That day, I gave a real Christmas for a girl
With no home, no fire to warm
But how many more in the streets
Might be staring through someone’s window
To look at the fire and find warmth thru sight
Just how many, countless, I know!

So if you find one outside your window
Staring in to have some warmth
Invite her in and give her a Christmas
Some warmth, some presents and a jolly “HO HO HO”

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
