White Christmas

White Christmas

A Poem by 外人 (Gaijin)
"

Hope you like it :)

"
Sparks of white snow fall
Miles away from my window,
Gathering under a winterly,
Foreign soil, an old dream of mine.

A lonely, unspoiled land,
Enriched by the joyful sight
Of a welcoming Christmas tree,
My inner eyes greedily behold.

Such far, northern landscape
Awakes in me a strong call
For wanderlust I can't ignore,
Thus, I wish and long and crave.

A gentle wind carries from there
A hopeful message to my heart:
Christmases are still to come
When my steps shall kiss this land.

Born and raised in hot places and being a huge fan of cold, I've always dreamed of experiencing a "White Christmas" like the ones I see in the movies or hear of in Christmas songs ... Hopefully one day I will !

A fine poem, I am lucky enough to live in Bavaria, with all its snow,villages, customs, and I get the impression here you are looking here for a Tyrolean kind of Christmas. But everywhere is great at Christmas, go up town and view the great Fireworks in London...I won`t see that!

this is a lovely poem. I relocated to MI this year only to experience a rare "brown christmas" here. I was a tad disappointed
When my steps shall kiss this land. Thought that was a beautiful lyrical line.

A beautiful poem for snow and the holiday of Christmas. Kids love the white Christmas. Us old folks must shovel the snow. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

你 好、外人!Miss tropical Christmases now that I am in the Midwest. The novelty of snow and cold fades after your first heavy snowfall and you don't have a snowblower to get rid of all the snow blocking your driveway....:)

Great poem. Christmas is awesome. It's my favorite holiday and time of year. This year we didn't get a "white" Christmas but oh well. It wish I could have made a snowman. Still great work.
