Christmas Lights

Christmas Lights

A Poem by Matt


The lights on the Christmas Tree winked
And the snow fell thick and heavy outside
From the walls of the school hall
Angels spread their silvery wings
And the Three Kings held high their gifts

The lights dimmed and silence fell
Mums and dads, grannies and grandpas
Stared at the stage expectantly
For the Christmas story to begin

A spotlight flooded the stage and a small child entered
Wide-eyed, she stared at the sea of smiling faces before her
"Welcome," she whispered, "to our. . . to our. . . .to our. . . "
Then she froze like a frightened rabbit caught in the headlights glare
"To our Nativity!" came the teachers hushed voice off-stage
"To our. . . "began the child again "To our. . . "
"Nativity!" repeated the teacher
"Harvest Festival!" announced the child
