Oh Christmas Tree

Oh christmas tree to thee I sing
I bring gifts to thee
I place strings around you
with pretty lights bows and bells
I place a star apon you top
and adorn you with popcorn 
under your skirt I place gifts a plenty
however christmas tree none of them are yours
you must watch as I open gift after gift
you must agonize as the kids shout for joy
over gifts that are theirs not yours
hours pass as we open gift after gift
when its all over we strio you bare
and throw you away to do it again
next year to your cousin
so I say christmas tree thanks for
being so patient with us humans
maybe one day you will get a gift.

    Very touching and heartwarming...I don't buy live cut trees because it's so sad to throw them away...Love your poem...Marty

    Christmas Trees give their all live another tree in another time but also like another person. Great work here. Keep the magic going. Sara

    "When it's all over, we strip you bare and throw you away" says a lot about society as well as holiday tradition, Malcolm. Like the way you try to placate the tree be suggesting it may receive a gift one day. Amusing, entertaining poem. Love, carolyn
