                 Christmas Scenes

The snow falls down adrift on beams of light
Beneath street lamps that stand on Essex Street
And shine on stores where Christmas shoppers greet
With warm hellos a chilly winter's night.

Salvation Army soldiers ring their bells
As shoppers donate coins for help and cheer,
These scenes are re-enacted every year-
Samaritans re-introduce noels.

On Common Street behind the scene of stores
A crowd of friendly strangers in the snow
Observe a story told from long ago-
A love each heart receives, gives, and adores.

Behind the Christmas scenes year after year
Is born again and shared this season's cheer.

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.
