Christmas Poetry- Christmas Tree

Oh Christmas Tree

Glowing Christmas Tree

Glowing Christmas tree

I can’t explain it

You feel so majestic to me

I can’t contain it

You fill my heart with glee

 

It’s so magical to see

Sparkling lights on my glowing Christmas tree

You light up my home

So effervescently

 

You are an amazing entity

So magical in beauty

Light up my heart tonight my dear tree

Here I’ll sit and adore you quietly

My glowing Christmas tree

 

Written by Latisha J.Greaves-Barker

“The Christmas tree is a symbol of love, not money. There’s a kind of glory to them when they’re all lit up that exceeds anything all the money in the world could buy.”

-Andy Rooney, Andy Rooney: 60 Years of Wisdom and Wit

Christmas Seperation

Pine

The smell of pine

Means its Christmas time

Smells heavenly divine

Its Christmas time

Tantalizing my senses

Breaking down my defenses

Its Christmas time

The child in me is here

She always comes out this time of year

Written by Latisha J.Greaves-Barker

“…freshly cut Christmas trees smelling of stars and snow and pine resin – inhale deeply and fill your soul with wintry night…”
-John Geddes, A Familiar Rain

Our Family Christmas Tree

Let’s decorate the Christmas tree

You, me, our family

Let’s hang the ornaments

Twirl the lights

What wonderful delights

How majestic will it be?

When we complete our Christmas tree

A reflection of you and me

Our family Christmas tree

Together we will have fun

Snack on milk and cookies when we’re done

Then as we sit by our family tree

We’ll read the Christmas story

of Jesus birth and all its glory

We’ll look up at our Christmas tree

And bask in its glow together peacefully

Written by Latisha J.Greaves-Barker

“The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree is the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other”

-Burton Hills

Christmas Seperation

Under My Christmas Tree

Under my Christmas tree

Awaits a special gift for me

Somebody above must really love me

 

They must’ve heard me laugh

Sometimes heard me cry

They must’ve seen me smile

They must’ve seen me sigh

 

They knew what I desired

And rendered that gift to me

That special gift

Perfectly wrapped

Beneath my Christmas tree

 

I did not take a peek

But I surely know

What it would be

Someone oh someone

Must surely love me

 

They listened when I asked

They heard my heart shout

For the giver of this Christmas gift

Must know what I’m about

 

So I finally took a look

I finally took a peek

As I suspected

It’s the Christmas gift I seek

 

Not a Barbie Doll

A mansion on the hill

A diamond ring

A physical thing with a temporary thrill

 

This Christmas gift came

complete with everything I needed

and if it was all I had, I’ll know I still succeeded

 

Family, joy, happiness, love

Peace and good friends

It even came with wonderful

children and a loving Husband

 

One by one

I counted what this entire gift contained

To make it very simple

I’ll call the gift by name

 

Under my tree

Beneath the trimmings and wrappings

Was a present full of God’s joyful blessings

Written by Latisha J.Greaves-Barker

“Remember, if Christmas isn’t found in your heart, you won’t find it under the tree

-Charlotte Carpenter

Christmas Seperation

O Tannenbaum

By Mannheim Steamroller, Johnny Mathis

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree!
How are thy leaves so verdant!
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
How are thy leaves so verdant!

Not only in the summertime,
But even in winter is thy prime.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
How are thy leaves so verdant!

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Much pleasure doth thou bring me!
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Much pleasure doth thou bring me!

For every year the Christmas tree,
Brings to us all both joy and glee.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Much pleasure doth thou bring me!

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Thy candles shine out brightly!
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Thy candles shine out brightly!

Each bough doth hold its tiny light,
That makes each toy to sparkle bright.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Thy candles shine out brightly!
