The Tree

Lighting up the night
Behold, beauty shining bright
Lights all aglow
Upon freshly fallen snow
Stands a solitary tree
Branches hanging merrily

    A nice poem, this reminds me of the stars in the night. Guiding and giving us light.

    Phyllis, I want to see you add what is hanging onto this tree into your description!! Maybe some berries or some leaves are hanging merrily on it? I really enjoyed this one and at the end, I just thought it would be cool to know why the branches were hanging merrily! Maybe it's a new mink coat of snow!!
