Christmas Morn

                                       Christmas Morn
                           The tree is lit,illuminating gifts under 
                            it's branches.
                           The stairs start creaking and children are
                            peeking. 
                           Descending ,with oohs and awes.
                           The desire to open the gifts is a tempting
                            invitation.                        
                           For now they sit with eyes so big, to ponder
                            brightly wrapped gifts , encased with their 
                            names on.
                           Desiring to see a parent come and say,
                            time to see what santa has left for you.
                           Then the opening begins, pleasantly
                           providing enjoyment for the parents 
                            to see their children's fun.
                           Paper tossed all around,
                           The gifts opened one by one.
                          
                               Anne Rutherford

    Simply beautiful and flowing right from the heart like all your poems, Anne. I make it a point every year to get Christmas gifts for my kids and nephew too, somehow these gifts always seem magical to them for they imagine Santa sneaking in at mid night to give gifts. Thanks so much for stopping by my page with your sweet words, always a joy dear Anne to hear from you. your words are always special.

    This is very nice. The opening of Gifts, one by one, is my favorite Christmas tradition.

    Gosh, I have such fond memories of Christmas morning. My deceased son, Joshua, would wake up at 3:00am and try to get his younger brother, Jonathan, up too. But, he would have none of it. So, Joshua thought he would do us a favor and open them all so we could get some sleep!! Nice write...Hugs, Holly Moore
