A Few Short Christmas Poems I Like
Christmas will be here before we know it. One thing for sure we can count on it arriving every year. December 25th whether we like it or not. Christmas has always been a time to share fun love, laughter, old memories and make new memories with our family and friends.
While sitting around the fireplace, living room area, gait room, outside roasting marshmallows, taking photos, telling old stories... whatever your family delight, add a few short Christmas poems I like to your memorable event.
christmas morning i
got up before the others and
naked across the plank
floor into the front
room to see grandmama
sewing a new
button on my last year
Had I the power
To cast a bell that should from some grand tower,
At the first Christmas hour,
Outring, And Fling
A jubilant message wide,
The forged metals should be thus allied:
No iron Pride,
But soft Humility, and rich-veined Hope
Cleft from a sunny slope;
And there should be
And silvery Love, that knows not Doubt or Fear,
To make the peal more clear;
And then to firmly fix the fine alloy,
There should be Joy!
The Rich Boy's Christmas
And now behold his sulking boy,
His costly presents bring no joy,
Harsh tears of anger fill his eye
Tho' he has all that wealth can buy.
What profits it that he employs
His many gifts to make a noise?
His playroom is so placed that he
Can cause his folks no agony.
Mere worldly wealth does not possess
The power of giving happiness.
Ellis Parker Butler (1869 - 1937)
