Yuletide Eve

The cool crisp air where cirrus sweeps
like strands of angel hair flow deep,
in the heavens where faith resides
on this Eve of Yuletide.
As the light of day grows dim
and carollers sing familiar hymns,
scarved red and green, side by side
on this Eve of Yuletide.
In the night the bright bulbs glow
lane by lane, row on row,
while the fire warms those inside
on this Eve of Yuletide.
At worship faithful praise and sing.
Around the village church bells ring.
Within his love we will abide
on this Eve of Yuletide.

In silent night while children sleep,
mothers kneel and softly weep,
praying for a peace worldwide
on this Eve of Yuletide.
Out in the fields, no city lights
among the stars there in the night,
the brightest hope on high presides
on this Eve of Yuletide.

    Ah yes...I was reared at a Christian school (my father was on the faculty) They had a magnificent student choir and the tradition was they made the rounds to each house and sang Christmas Carols outside...Great stuff, Craig!...Congrats and have a very happy and blessed 2013 - Tim

    I LOVE this, Craig! Congratulations on your 1st place win. The flow and rhyme scheme are flawless. I especially love the imagery of the first two lines. Bravo!

    Hi Deb, thanks but nothing here is contradictory since it is totally contemporary thoughts, many song and people today still refer to Christmas and its' parts as yule and my reference to the star was only symbolism for God and hope and love which we often find away from the bustle. Clearly metaphor--no confusion. Every thought could apply to Christmas Eve this year or any.

    Most excellent you kinda had a double ending there and content wise it is a bit confusing to speak of the pagan yule & the Christmas Star? Maybe sharpen the focus on this one you do have plenty of good verses >light & Love

    Please soup mail me with any thoughts, if one was to overly concern themselves with semantics and evolving derivations our creative flow would be severely restricted. I hesitate to appeal to scholars such as yourself but to the 99% who relax in the thoughts. Thank You
