Christmas Poem

Tidings On Christmas Eve

To me, Christmas is a time of love and joy, where we put aside our hatred to enjoy the season and spend time with family and friends.

Though I live in Australia, I can picture the scene in my mind's eye. It's reminiscent of a Charles Dickens scene from Scrooge. I love the poem and appreciate the words and talent of the poet.

Blessings And Good Tidings

Rows of houses blanketed with snow.
Christmas lights lucent and aglow.
A reindeer, a sleigh, like artwork on display.
Stories unraveling, brass bells ringing,
Smiles and laughter and joyful singing.
Come, gather 'round the table tonight!

Cold is the winter.
Warm is the fire.
Blessings, good tidings to all of your days.

'Tis the season to celebrate!
Sheath your swords of anger and hate.
A candle, a wish, the flickering of a flame,
Love everlasting, love never ceasing,
Peace and rest to ease our breathing.
Come, gather 'round the table tonight!

Cold is the winter.
Warm is the fire.
Blessings, good tidings to all of your days.
