A Child's Christmas

Sight, Sound and Scent When I think of the bygone Christmas Images that come to my mind are Candy canes, cookies and popcorn strands Adorning the Christmas tree. The popcorn strands are easier to make And still, I think, a family project. I know, decorating with cookies difficult But feel their homey feel with cookie cutters Which can be napkin rings for the table Hear the sleigh bells ring Creating the quintessential Christmas melody Hang a strap of sleigh bells on your front door Warm sounds a great greeting for the guests. But the best sound is children’s laughter And the squeals of glee, as the presents opened Think of the toys that simple things You might have played with a child Like a jack-in-box or spinning circus top. Spices, bayberry and baked things, Are all scents that evoke the holidays Choose the Christmas décor that appeals Not only to eyes but to the nose and ears Drape fir branches tied with a red bow above the door.

    I too like the nostalgia in this poem, thank you for bringing back fond memories. I especially loved doing the popcorn strings, we did cranberries too. In New England many people used to decorate with food for the birds so when we took the tree out of the house it was still a gift but now to the animals. Norway I believe focuses on giving gifts of thanks to their animals. We should go back to that reverence! Congrad's Light & Love
