SPECIAL PAPER BAG




Hours before tolls rang of Christmas midnight
My godchild quite young, cuddled me real tight,
Above, he pointed at the biggest star
Then named it after me, brilliant from afar.

My heart sang with his boyish thoughtfulness
Amidst revelry, cheers started to progress
Tidings and food graced the house and pine tree;
Opening gifts on eve of jubilee.

Beside my loot stood a wobbly paper bag
With drawings my fingers had to untag
Surprised, I murmurmed my holiday wish;
Inside was a handmade star on creped varnish.

Teary-eyed, a note of love written down
Across a pad trimmed with bows all around;
His precious gift  made breaths rise, to exhale
Oh, from a child who couldn’t rightly spell!

    This does sound like a perfect gift to rival all material ones, I think that little boy you knew you real well, he wasn't lying, it was Nette's star, and it will always be, in my eyes dear heart, you are a bright and shining star, to all who have been touched by your grace, a winner on my list, though I don't go for labels, I'll be brave and label you, A Star ***
