Christmas Eve of Old

In harmony that the angels hear
Sweet music of a Midnight Clear
With reverent voices, in joyful mode
A sacred song of long ago
A velvet night while stars appear
Old carols sung on captured ear
Around a piano, where candles glow
Outside the air, with breath of snow
A fireside, where flames enchant
Old memories, from lips recant
'Neath mistletoe, two lovers kiss
A soul renewed, a spirit lifts
Some lift their glass to make a toast
While others sing of Heavenly Host
Beneath a tree, the children guess
Then off to bed, with kisses blessed
In harmony that the angels hear
Sweet music about a Midnight Clear

    Always the sentimental ... the lover of the beautiful, the singer of sweet memories ... always the true friend, the inspiration that makes you feel belonging ... especially when you write a comment on a poem of mine, especially just to see your name so special there ... always I read your poems patiently chewing them for their pure delight. Thanks, with compliments of the season.

    Takes me right back to my childhood and many wonderful Christmas memories...being a music lover like you, my favorite carols are 'The First Noel' and 'Oh Come all Ye Faithful' sung by a huge choir accompanied by an orchestra....Merry Christmas! - Tim
