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!

Lovely tune and poem. Home becomes a cocoon that holds in all the happiness regardless of the vagaries we combat when we leave our front door.

Thank you, Anne. Have a very Merry Christmas!
I really like it. I would consider taking the last "then" out - but poetic privilege of course:)
