A Christmas Tree! A Christmas Tree! - Poem by David Keig

A Christmas tree! A Christmas tree!
With dark green needled memories
Of childhood dreams and mysteries
Wrapped present-like in front of me.

A Christmas tree! A Christmas tree!
I glimpse a past wherein i see
The child that then grew into me
Not forward fast but haltingly.

A Christmas tree! A Christmas tree!
A time for being with family
A time that's gone so fleetingly
Yet lives for always deep in me.

A Christmas tree! A Christmas tree!
When twelfth night comes whole hauntingly
One lingered look and then i see
No Christmas tree where it would be.

A Christmas tree! A Christmas tree!
With feelings now felt longingly
No corner in my house to see
The magic of that Christmas tree.

    Ghosts Of Christmas Trees Past

    Christmas in childhood eyes
    is a beautiful song sparkling...

    first memories happiness wonder
    good cheer tidings Christmas songs
    good will bubbling in merry laughter....

    in old age cast mind back into childhood
    dreams mysteries colourful wrapped presents
    enchanting dazzling desired possibilities
    impatience is tiny fingers expectant minds...

    conversation is star dust monologue child's
    inability to tiny body contain joyful expectations
    glorious rich imagination images developed with pathos
    tragedy bliss tragedy bliss waiting waiting to open presents....

    before final unbelievable Christmas
    Eve creeping dawning darkness dusk
    Christmas Day marvels care laid out
    so long unopened under silent Christmas...

    Tree happy glint decorations sparkles
    coloured flashing green strung lights
    charming calm beauty are our Christmas scenes
    light snow tumbling falls through windless dark...

    decades passing hauntingly suddenly
    when all family friends may be gone
    even without years past Christmas trees
    glorious magic of Christmas trees lingers....
