Christmas Magic

A Christmas eve, so long ago, heard sacred songs, in a joyful modes. Songs sung with reverent , blithesome voices, brought loved ones close, to come rejoicing, trekking through the snow, inviting, and, blending voices, hearts, uniting.-- In velvet blue, a star appears, breaking through clouds, bright and clear With fervent news for all to hear, restoring faith, both far and near While air is thick with a misty snow, and frost so silver, icy cold, we'd cuddle close, with the lamps turned low, by a fireside, where embers glow. A piano played, where crowds have grown and tree lights shined, in colored jewels. Sleepy children, were tucked into a bed warmed up by yuletide tunes. The night so filled by a magic bliss, while mistletoe, might spark a kiss. We'd lift a glass to make a toast while bells ring out "Oh, Heavenly Host" The hush of magic, would appear, as snow brings closure, and good cheer And a wish of love, to end the year!
