Our Christmas Tree - Poem by Ernestine Northover

Our Christmas tree, stood straight and tall,
We had it standing in the hall,
With decorations, sparkling bright,
And baubles, glittering in the light,
Rich tinsel laced around branches wide,
With bells and bows, that could be spied
Hiding among the dark green pine,
In silver and gold, boldly they did shine,
And at the very top, such a wondrous sight,
A star was placed there, which gave delight.
The whole effect so pleasured the eye.
We planted it outside, now it's 18 feet high.
This year it will once again, be a thrill,
Hung with big coloured lights, in the crisp winter chill.

    Brandon. I can see what your saying... Ruby`s st0ry is good... on saturday I got Car after bringing in $7751 this past month and just a little over ten-grand this past-month. without a doubt it is the nicest-job I've ever done. I actually started 6 months ago and pretty much straight away began to bring in at least $71, per-hour. I use the details here............www.geosalary.com (Report) Reply
