"I will hold Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year." - Charles Dickens.


Christmas Poetry


My Christmas Tree

    My Christmas tree still grows
    In the forest 'neath the sky
    Branches bowed with decorations
    Unseen by the naked eye
    The kinds of ornaments
    You can't buy in any store
    Made from recollections
    From Christmases of yore
    Nights spent until wee hours
    Putting those toys together
    Going out late for batteries
    Into the wintry weather
    The flushed, excited faces
    The wide eyes filled with glee
    Some old memories of those times
    When that excited child was me
    Friends and family dropping by
    With loads of Christmas cheer
    When leaving, shouting wishes
    To wish, a "Happy New Year"
    Some memories of quiet eves
    In front of a cracklin' fire
    A hot toddy, maybe two
    Before this Santa'd retire
    But friends and family move
    And some may really go away
    But they've a place in my heart
    Christmas Eve and Christmas day
    For now those kids of yesteryear
    They suddenly are grown
    They find mates, get married
    Have families of their own
    Those Christmas decorations
    Need not sparkle and shine
    For memories bring a beauty
    Of a very special kind

    Del "Abe" Jones
