a christmas wish“out of love flows the milk of human kindness,….
for it is there to remind us.
it is god’s blessing from above,… to keep
in mind when it comes to push and shove.
if we all search our souls hard enough,….
will will discover the love that lies hidden deep
inside of us.
let’s all try to get along,…to make life and love
one big happy song.for the world is like an apple slowly
rotting from the core,….ruled by thieves and despots
who are arming themselves for war.
so,if we now all join hands and work along together as one,…..the battle will not be lost,but won.
the world is filled with trials and tribulations,rumors
of war and conflagrations.let’s now all pray for peace among all nations.
life is one big mountain we must all climb and overcome,…..
for if we fail we will surely all succumb.if we do not learn
from history,once and for all,….our world, as we know it
will topple and fall. in our hands we hold our destiny and
fate,…we must all act now,for it is getting very late.”
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar plums danc’d in their heads,
And Mama in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap —
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters, and threw up the sash.
The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow,
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below;
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny rein-deer,
With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and call’d them by name:
“Now! Dasher, now! Dancer, now! Prancer, and Vixen,
“On! Comet, on! Cupid, on! Dunder and Blixem;
“To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
“Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!”
As dry leaves before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky;
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of Toys — and St. Nicholas too:
And then in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound:
He was dress’d all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnish’d with ashes and soot;
A bundle of toys was flung on his back,
And he look’d like a peddler just opening his pack:
His eyes — how they twinkled! his dimples how merry,
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry;
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow.
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow;
The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.
He had a broad face, and a little round belly
That shook when he laugh’d, like a bowl full of jelly:
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laugh’d when I saw him in spite of myself;
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And fill’d all the stockings; then turn’d with a jerk,
And laying his finger aside of his nose
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose.
He sprung to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew, like the down of a thistle:
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight —
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
Evergreen boughs that fill our homes
With fragrant Christmas scents,
Hearts filled with the loving glow
That Christmas represents;
Christmas cookies, turkeys stuffed,
Festive holly berry,
Little faces bright with joy,
Loved ones being merry;
Parties, songs, beribboned gifts,
Silver bells that tinkle,
Christmas trees and ornaments,
Colorful lights that twinkle;
Relatives waiting with open arms
To smile and hug and kiss us;
These are some of the special joys
That come along with Christmas.
Are we too grownup to feel a thrill
As we light the Christmas tree?
Are we immune to cookies,
Christmas cards and Christmas glee?
Are we too adult to “Ooh” and “Aah”
At the Christmas candle’s glow?
Are we blasé about our gifts;
Do we shun the mistletoe?
Are we too mature for carols,
For merry or for jolly?
Do the decorations leave us cold,
The ornaments and holly?
Fat chance! We’ll never grow too old
To love the Christmas magic.
A year without a Christmas
Would be boring, even tragic.
So bring it on! The candy canes,
The feasting and good cheer;
O Christmas, lovely Christmas,
You’re the highlight of the year!
A Sunny Christmas
Every year at Christmas time
There’s not a sign of snow.
Instead we spend our yuletide days
In the sun’s warm cheery glow.
We have the best of Christmas things,
The lights, the gifts, the bells,
(And “snowbirds” who arrive en masse
To fill our beach hotels.)
The glorious weather fits right in
With our happy Christmas mood,
And we can also walk and run
Without having to be snowshoed.
So don’t feel bad for your (location) friends
Who have no snow or ice.
We think our sunny Christmas here
Is a holiday paradise!
A Merry Christmas Wish for You
While you enjoy the gifts,
food, sparkle of ornaments and lights,
feasting on favorite foods,
I wish this Christmas
would envelop you
in the special warmth
and rich contentment
the season brings.
I wish friends, family,
all those who love you
let you know how much they care,
so that you feel happily wrapped
in their affection.
I wish this Christmas
would be one you never forget,
a shining beacon in your memory
to light all of your days.
Christmas Time Together
For most, this time of year
Is ornaments, lights and gifts.
People are out to shop,
Though snow may mass in drifts.
For me this time is different
From what others feel and see;
For me it’s just more happiness
Full of you and me.
You fill my life with joy
Each moment that we share.
I’m thankful for time with you;
Nothing can compare.
I want to make life good for you
In every way I can.
You’ve been my own true love
Since our relationship began.
So I’m writing you this poem
To help you to feel my love;
We can be this way forever,
With help from up above.
