This One I Picked For Christmas - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

How many Angels can sit atop a tree.
This one I picked for Christmas,
To bring such joy for me.

And how many lights can twinkle bright,
As stars?
Trimming branches candycaned.
That lightens up my heart!

How many gifts wished,
Will I get this year?
And how many will share Christmas,
With laughter and not tears.

How many bells will ring,
As carols are heard sung?
How many will make sure,
Goodwill is felt...
By everyone.

How many Angels can sit atop a tree.
This one I picked for Christmas,
And sits so beautifully.

Where is that magic made,
That comes we celebrate?
How can we keep it here...
With us like this always?

How many bells will ring,
As carols are heard sung?
How many will make sure,
Goodwill is felt...
By everyone.
And stays.
