Signs Of Christmas Cheer

Signs Of Christmas Cheer

A Poem by Marie Harrison

Christmas Poem



































Signs Of Christmas Cheer

Silver tinsel dangles from a tree,

Tiny trinkets shine for all to see,


Popcorn strung with colorful

Red cranberries.


Twinkly lights blink bright

And rapidly.


Home fires burn slowly

In hot wood furnaces.


Mounds of snow build up,

Too cold for bare toes.


Sugary butter cookies melt

On hungry little tongues.


Spicy butter rum quenches

The thirst of my joyous crooning carolers.


Mistletoe hung up above

To spark the first kiss of love below.


Perfectly wrapped packages

Topped with big satin red bows.

Did someone mention rum?

Surely, some of the feelings and memories expressed here, belong to more than just our childhood? A lovely tribute to the joy of Christmas! Interestingly, the writer has chosen to focus on visual aspects of this festive time. Perhaps, that helps to hold a reader's attention more? Also, I wondered if the childhood memories described by the writer - are her fondest Christmas memories of all? Thankyou, for sharing this poem with us!

I love Christmas, but dont really care for the winter, but you always somehow manage to make me welcome it with open arms. Your love and admiration
for the season is contagious.
