Christmas Greetings-2016

Rating: 5.0
To all my PH friends, who have Christ in their hearts
Merry Christmas wishes, sincerely I impart
With memories to share with those that you hold dear
And lots and lots of love for that special one near

Like the first ray of warmth that brought forth spring's bouquet
The Star of Bethlehem shone bright on Christmas day
Christ the Saviour was born to save us all from sin
His message wise and clear, that mankind is akin
A time to merry make and a time to forgive

3 - so, i've said my piece. the poem is fine. we just have some different views. i hope 'no recent submissions' is not a sign you've forsaken PH, or lost your marbles completely and given up poetry! ! bri :) to MyPoemList, for old time's sake

2 - What about sacrificial lambs etc in the Old Testament? oh, yeah, that was the doing of the evil Jews! Right? and they didn't stop at creature 'lambs'! so my former Christian church taught me Jews would (with others who did not embrace Jesus as God) not reach Heaven. : ( would it not be more Christlike to give more than " a thought" to the poor? ?

1 - So, what about us without Christ in our hearts, ...or any other part of our bodies? ? ? ? and i suppose you'd spare turkeys, 'cause you are sometimes a 'turkey'? ? i guess veggies aren't creatures, but you would " celebrate life" with them nonetheless?

This poem 'Christmas Greetings-2016 -' opens the eyes of readers towards the poors who are suffering from hunger. I quote here....... So while you celebrate please spare a kindly thought For all the poor out there with fear and hunger fraught..... Dear Loke, you have astutely and touchingly inscribed this poem that i like most.

Hi Loke, Going through all your poems, I found that i have not read 'Christmas Greetings'. While we celebrate any big festival, it is always important to look around to see the poor, sick and hungry. I too consider, kindness to our fellow human beings, to be the biggest virtue. Today, i am visiting a church and i shall certainly share something with a hungry person. Thank you so much for this inspiring poem. God bless your kind soul.

Thanks for your profound views, BUT Not to 'save us all from fear and hunger'. I have posted some writes recently; I'm sure you have not read them..

i just used fraught in a poem the other day! So while you celebrate please spare a kindly thought For all the poor out there with fear and hunger fraught .................Thoughts, without actions, accomplish naught, except to perhaps make the 'thinker' feel better. but THAT in itself is useful, i suppose. fears and hunger are, i believe, things which some humans will suffer as long as this Saviour was born to 'save us all from sin', ..............', BUT Not to 'save us all from fear and hunger'. : ( bri :) (?)
