Dance Around The Christmas Tree - Poem by Monica Engeler

A tall pinetree stood in front of me.
Many colorful rays blazed bright,
And garland wrapped about the tree.
I just gazed at the beauty with a smile.

I wanted to jump all about tree.
A Christmas tune entered my mind,
And I started to twirl round with glee.
I sang “Jingle bells, Christmas is so fine.”

A man saw me dance by the pedigree,
And kindly offered his hand in sway.
I accepted it, and we balled by the tree.
The two of us sang while we swung away.

We waltzed near the timber a long time.
Our jamboree chain just grew and grew.
When we ended turning, a group stood by.
My pard and I shared the luster for a few.

It was a gorgeous evening that night.
Not a cloud in the sky could be seen.
The glowing brilliance looked so right.
Up high, the North Star could be scene.

It was just before midnight of Christmas Eve.
If one listened hard, one heard angels near.
They chanted Merry Christmas to all of thee.
Then the mass wished all A Happy New Year.
