A Christmas Prose

coffee perking and fresh fruit out

fire crackling and children waking

a familiar story read

a sweet prayer said

Christmas morning is here.

excited eyes to see

stockings filled and presents wrapped

fingers open quickly

and squeals delight our ears

what a blessed day is come to us.

snow falling lightly

family time together

nibbling on snacks

love and laughter shared by all

the celebration continues.

festive outfits on

presents gathered together

through the snow we'll go

other family to see

more joy to be had.

delicious dinner given

visiting with those we love

gifts, goodies, and glee

full bellies and hugs to each

so thankful for the family we have.

slow drive home

peaceful snowy streets

aglow with lights for all to see

remind us of the true gift of Light

come down for us all.
