The star

   Singing carols at Christmas time with mistletoe hung high
 Enjoying mistletoe kisses and pumpkin pie
 Bringing cheer to others both near and far
 The tree is decorated but is missing its star

 Perhaps it's in the attic somewhere
Someone needs to find it to make the tree complete
As we sing Rudolph the red nosed reindeer
While awaiting Christmas treats

Then the star is finally put upon the tree
Shining bright for all to see
Like long ago when a star proclaimed the new born king
Listen carefully and you can hear the angels sing

    Fantastic! My favorite Christmas song is O Holy Night, and the last stanza made me think of it.

    Nice story on the best part of the tree. I can't remember from year to year what our star/angel looks like...it's like a new gift each year.

    Nicely timed, Joseph. You certainly hit the high points well. Now you've needled me, and I need to get out the tree. Well, tomorrow maybe.
