A Christmas Story


A Christmas Story

A Christmas Story

About this time of year,

There comes a celebration,

When the child in everyone,

Has great anticipation.

With boxes bows, candy canes,

Hot Spiced cider, model trains,

lots of carols and the tree,

How much more is there to see?

Giving, Caring, love and sharing,

They are all good, but . . .

Long ago, far across the sea,

In a little town,

Where there wasn't much to see.

No lights, no tree,

No things to catch your eye,

If you listen very close,

You may hear him cry.

I multitude of angels, and shepherds gather round,

Animals are watching,

And kings are kneeling down.

It is the birth,

Of a very special child,

Who is very humble,

Gentle meek and mild.

So remember,

When you gaze upon that tree,

The birth of a special child,

Who died for you and me.

I enjoyed this poem also. I like your technique of writing. The flow is very eye catching. I have just posted a poem called the true meaning, which is much like this one. About taking the time to remember what it's all about. very well written.

This is a awesome poem. I loved the way you turned it from something just pushed aside to something about our savior. what a blessing a truly awesome read.

good rhythmic sway. A little cliche. and i prefer to keep X in Christmas, as it is a winter solstice to be celebrated by all religions.

Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.
