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.
