The Christmas Star of Love and Peace

The Christmas Star of Love and Peace

A Poem by Joyce S. Greene
"

In God’s great garden grows a tree . . .

"





In God’s great garden grows a tree

green and glorious as can be

On Christmas Day He smiles on earth

to celebrate His one Son’s birth

God trims with care this tree He loves

and showers gifts from high above.

 

He strings the lights from children’s eyes

from branch to branch up to the skies

Next God adds laughter of the young

and songs of faith in many tongues

He tenderly then sprinkles dreams

of lovers dancing while He beams.

 

God calls to angels standing guard

in soft white garments brightly starred

who watch each little girl and boy

while shedding tears of silver joy

which fall upon the shining tree

and shimmer brightly, He can see.

 

God’s very pleased with what He’s done

with one last touch He gives His Son

A gift of grace that will not cease

the Christmas Star of love and peace.

Joyce This is gloriously amazing! I'm so jealous that Ms Rita beat me to be the first one to read it. Every line here is rich with wisdom and love. Every line here I want. The rhythm really flows with 8 syllables count each line. And you nailed it brilliantly well with the last two lines. You surpassed your piece Dragonfly with this composition.
" A gift of grace that will not cease
the Christmas Star of love and peace."
What a precious gift and a tribute to our gracious and loving Savior and Lord.

Thanks for your very gracious review, Coyote. I always love hearing from you.
There are times when the pouring of words, from a pen dipped in the heart, know not brevity to share and spread the beauty of a thought. This, Joyce, would be such a magical and spiritual write. Truly a write of beauty and love. Tom

Joyce, this was simply beautiful and the message within these words is why we celebrate Christmas in the first place. There's a song that I've sung in church before that says, "He grew the tree that He knew would be used to make the old rugged cross." This poem reminds me of that. Very, very well done, my friend!
