A Christmas Poem

Green boughs glowing in the Christmas lights,
Silver tinsel shimmering,
Nativity under the tree shining bright,
My heart wants to joyfully sing,
Hear the churchbells ring!

Christ was born on this holy day,
He came here to show the way,
When we follow, such peace we will find,
He's made the path for all mankind.

The gifts await beneath the tree,
One given specially in the nativity,
A simple crib where all give Him tribute,
A tree again will bear the everlasting fruit.

And so, on this one holy day of days,
For all who seek the One who's true,
Let's all raise a song and unite holy praise,
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, to you.

In the spirit of Louis Gander's idea to rewrite a secular Christmas song, here is one done a few years ago. This follows the tune of "A Christmas Song". Most people know the first line, "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire". Give the idea a try, poets. God bless.

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.
