Noel In The Holler

Rating: 5.0
As the sun kisses the dusk to bid a nights pleasant dream
And Winter's crystalline blanket blinks its pinkish-blue hues
A few leaves cling to a branch in reverent stubbornness
While a gust of wind whistles through its wooden chimes

I sit on my porch on this blessed night
Wondering about the magis wonderful sight
Of a star portending God's gift to mankind
A distant flame of hope for the lonely and forgotten

Across the holler on a distant hill
A cabin light flickers without concomitant cry of a whippoorwill
Silent are these nights when the cold air bites
Even more so on this holiday tide

Faint was the sound of a distant song
Of a neighbor's melodious wail
About the heralded birth of Jesus Christ
And redemption for sins for which we must prevail

As I stopped rocking in my chair
I closed my eyes and listened with care
As I wiped a couple of tears away
And thanked our Lord for this Christmas Day

A sublime and well written Christmas poem that leaves a reader spellbound. I thoroughly enjoyed this original and beautifully constructed touch of Christmas class with a hint of melancholy. A great and sublime poem on display. Thank you Thomas for writing and sharing this gem.10++ and added to my thought provoking favourites. Thanks again and take care man.
