A Christmas Sonnet

"God rest ye merry Gentlemen" we hear the choir sing
in all the towns and villages church bells begin to ring
people gather together with friends and family
sharing gaily wrapped up presents hidden 'neath the tree
the brightly laden table holds food for one and all
to celebrate this special day when Christmas comes to call

In a house not far from town sits a lady all alone
watching the flickering T.V as she waits by the phone
suddenly the welcome ring, her face is wreathed in smiles
as she hears once more the well loved voice across the many miles
her happiness is now complete, her Christmas day has come
she sits and chats and nods away listening to her son

"Silent Night" the choir sings and calm once more descends
a happy time for everyone, and one that never ends.

Silent Night is an eternal song - a wonderful Christmas Hymn. So is your beautiful Christmas poem, dear Patricia.

I would like to hear my Dad singing Santa Claus is coming to Town once again, even with his off-key singing Bravo!

Last Christmas I played Silent Night on my clarinet outside my neighbours homes and they went gooy-eyed! !
