Each Needle on this Tree


All memories live in the this Christmas tree

The ornament, lights, stocking, mistletoe, and bells

Each needle of this tree, each one cast a great spell

Consuming the potion bring joyous memories to me


I can still feel the winter breeze caress my cheeks...

Chills run through my spine

Hair tangled with snow

My nose became red bright


Holding hand with dad

He once call me Rudolph

And I chase him around

As the swift of snow dance along with the wind


He would lifts me up so I can see

Frozen branches formed of crystal

Frozen river became a skating ring

It was enchanting, delightful, wonderful, amazing


Mountain was beautiful; I wish to someday be on top

Hugging and snuggling daddy

As mother came out screaming

“Dinner’s ready!”


After dinner we sing our carol

While decorating our Christmas tree

And grandma would bake gingerbread cookies

While grandpa playing his harmonica


Dancing along with the music

The house was filled with laughter

All in this Christmas tree, each needle

Has a story...

What a wonderful and warm Christmas poem!My favorite Christmases were in childhood when I stood beneath a shining Christmas tree, head bent back looking all the way up to the top and wondering how to get that angel down. lol
