Christmas Magic

On Christmas eve, so long ago were sacred songs, in a joyful mode Songs shared with reverent , blithesome voices Folks gathered close, they'd come rejoicing, trekking through the snow, inviting, and, calling forth all hearts, uniting.-- In the velvet night, a star appeared It burst through snow clouds, far and near A fervent message, crystal clear To all who honor, have no fear While air was thick with a misty snow, and frost so silver, icy cold They would cuddle, with the lamps turned low by a fireside, where embers glowed. A piano plays, where crowds have grown and tree lights shine, in colored jewels Sleepy children, are tucked into a bed warmed up by yuletide tunes. The night so filled by a magic bliss Even mistletoe, would spark a kiss Some lift their glasses to make a toast And bells ring out "Oh, Heavenly Host" The hush of magic, would appear As snow brought closure to the year The magic of a Midnight Clear Rings out until the New Year's here
