Merry Christmas


Mistletoe in hand lips pursed for a kiss
Excited children wait for Santa, an opportunity they can't miss
Red Poinsettia adorn the Christmas table
Rows a plenty about what to watch on cable
Youngsters dress up in dressing gowns and tea towels to star in the nativity

Chains made from paper and snowflakes are a popular craft activity
Holly and the Ivy and Silent Night are sung sweetly by candle light
Ribbons and bows on presents are a wonderful sight
Ice skates at the ready, the big freeze is on the way
Spirits are high as revelers stagger home and sway
Thoughts turn to those who work away from home
Missing those they love like a garden without a gnome
Abundant love and peace is the message that is spread
Snow clouds gather for a picture perfect Christmas up ahead

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
