                    Home for Christmas

A soft white light shines through the window’s frost
As if a lamp for pilgrims cold and lost,
Around the house, the Christmas lights aglow
Pour orange, red, and green across the snow.

A neighbor’s window shares its Christmas tree
Of sparkling lights like stars reminding me
That one bright star once shone for all on high
Above a town beneath His Christmas sky.

As drifting snowflakes settle on the ground,
Some nearby voices sing a joyful sound,
The row of streetlights leading down the road,
Invite my roaming heart to ease its load.

Beneath the streetlights, snowflakes flutter down
And lay to rest all urgencies in town,
I hear the voices singing, “Peace on earth,”
A star, a stable, and a new king’s birth.

Before the manger, stands a children’s choir,
The church bells herald Christmas from its spire,
Angelic voices sing, “Good will towards men,”
Then, through the church’s door, I’m home again.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
