A Winter Christmas Card

Rating: 5.0
I met you in a winter Christmas card.
The wind played carols through the evergreens.
Snow fell like angel birds on old tin roofs.
The mood was appalachian to the soul.

Time painted us a picture of ourselves.
The gray landscape was bathed in candlelight
From sun almost too threadbare to exist,
And yet we thanked the faint warmth for its gift.
Home shone for us across a vast white field.

A truly beautiful portrait of the turning of the year. Prayers for all the souls who met you thus - but I think your poem is a tribute to a special friend of your verse. Such friendships may endure, and be passed on, each enriching the next. So it is with you, Sandra. This lovely poem evokes the dying of the light - the very point from which new hope is born. The shadows grow very long, this time of year. Though the winds are cold, they do sing carols. From such music, new music may be born. - Will
