Once Upon A December

Once Upon A December

A Poem by *~*Butterfly Kisses*~*

Memories of my childhood, when my mother used to sing to me. I didnt mean for this to rhyme.


Frost gathers upon the glass

Things I can almost remember

Things my heart yearns to never forget

Once upon a December.


An angel whispers softly

Gentle sweet lullabies

As silver storm slowly approaches

Colored hues dance across the sky.


Horses galloping in the distance

Sleigh bells chiming soon they fade

Held in an embrace so safe and warm

A soft monotone song in my ears played.


A peaceful sound in childlike ears

Drifting into sleepy dreams

She still sings in the moonlight

Through the windows, it gleams.


Fading embers take their final breath

Things I yearn to remember

In my heart these memories stay forever

Once upon a December.

For a contest. And yes, one or two lines are to be credited to the song in the movie Anastasia. For the most part, it is still a memory.

What a beautiful poem! I doubt I will ever know what it's like to have snow in December, or snow at all for that matter!
I really enjoyed reading this, keep up the wonderful work (:
