Reluctant Celebrant ( a poem of inspiration)
On a white carpeted plain, devoid of any color scheme,
Absent, there, a finite character,
Standing alone. a cedar tree, small and limbs all askew,
Erect, that as its positive factor.
A small snowshoe hare, hip-hops along the way,
Hides beneath a lowering limb,
While a lonesome crescent moon, awaits expectantly,
Hangs over the windy and snowy rim.
A busy raccoon tiptoes over the icy snow, determined,
Stops mid stride and beneath the cedar,
Startled by the bright moon's vibrant shape,
Squeeks, as if to salute the bunny there, its only greeter.
A hungry bird, a Cardinal, flits above the tree, then lands,
Perches lightly upon a greening branch.
Soon is joined there by a blue bird, to serenade,
An assembly gathering, attached, as if by chance.
A red fox scurries over the hill, joins in with brothering clan,
Sits upright, to ponder in the cold and starry light,
Adding a real color, to this ever growing band.
A decorative addition, natural, to this Christmas night.
Now, on that lonely hilltop, the cheerful cedar, to stand,
This special salute, a fond tribute, glimmers there so grand.
With furry creatures to keep the tree company, all together.
Nature's Christmas tree sweetly greeting Winter's weather.
