The Christmas Light: A Little Holiday Cheer In June

I came across this poem I wrote in 1995, and although it's a Christmas poem, it's always nice to be reminded of the "Light."


The Christmas Light

Happy Decembers are like snow flakes,

Made of the same stuff,

With each a different take.

No wonder Winter falls

As Christmas lands.

During the Holiday Season

We search our past

For memories of another time.

We hold on to what is,

But can't let go

Of the child's rhyme.

A glad tiding indeed,

To sit 'round the tree

Searchin' for Santa,


And Frosty,

Knowing they really exist...

Somewhere off of TV.

That makes for warm feelings


A place that's never cold

In which to play seek and hide.


The treasure of Christmas,

And all that it means,

Is found in the Light

That illumines and beams.

Near Christmas and always

And every Holy Day, too

The laughter is hearty

And the smiles are bright.

For safe restful joys

Open the peaceful way

And close each

Silent pretty night.
