My Family's Home

A Poem by Joyce S. Greene
"

A Song to be Sung to the Tune of "My Favorite Things"

"




Santa is sleighing and reindeer are winging
Candles are glowing and carolers singing
Laughter and joy in glad greetings we hear
Christmas brings people together each year.

Fresh cookies baking and eggnog for nipping
Church bells and kids' yells and boxes for shipping
Moonlight and mistletoe calling us near
Christmas brings people together each year.

Tinsel is shining and white lights are winking
Children are giggling and eyelids are blinking
Presents are waiting for friends who are dear
Christmas brings people together each year.

When the clerks scowl
When the wind howls
When crowds push and shove
I simply remember my family's home
And then my heart glows with love!

Thank you so much for your wonderful review, PH, and Merry Christmas!
This is just magnificent, perfectly in tune with the song, and reminds me of the Apple commercial where the teenage boy is attached to this phone, removed from family, while all the while videotaping everything for everyone's viewing pleasure at the end. It's so heart-touching and sweet. Great job!

Thank you for your very nice review. Linda. Merry Christmas!
I actually sung this out loud to the tune of "My Favorite Things" and the rhythm was perfect! This one is just wonderful. I could feel the familial love throughout your words and you captured the scenes of the season too. Nothing like the love we feel from home and family, is there? Great work here, Joyce. Lydi**

Now, THAT was fun! I did sing it (to the quizzical looks from my dog...) and it flows perfectly! Home makes it all worth it... Great piece here, Joyce!
