Christmas At Sixty-Nine Poem by Darwin Henry Beuning

Christmas At Sixty-Nine

Rating: 5.0

In the quiet of my home
Christmas, twenty-five December
Drawing near

Our Christmas Tree
'From a box'
Lighting up our living room

Gathered around me
Pictures and cards
From family and friends

Christmas present,
Christmas past
The Christmas Tree
Symbol of all that we seek

Colorful bulbs,
Blinking lights,
Lighting up my soul

Hank, a very nice Christmas poem. So restful and relaxing. My Christmas tree also comes in a box. No more pine needles or pine sap on my carpet! Merry Christmas to you and your family!

What a delightful holiday poem! We also have a tree out of the box that's beautifully transformed our living room. Nice to see the revisited Christmas photo of Bea and you. Wishing you good health returned and blessings.

Somewhat belatedly, I enjoyed your poem and photograph very much, making me realize my own Christmas is too plain. Keep writing and taking photos. Michael.

Lovely picture. Can almost hear Bea thinking...'hurry up...doesn't take that long to take a photo'...maybe saying it too. Looking good. Enjoy the evening and best wishes for the year ahead. Barney
