A Rockwell Christmas Child

Tree lights are on, and dinner's done A tummy full from Christmas cake A sticky face from candy canes A cookie plate with Santa's name Stockings hung, by the fireplace And traces of some sleepy faces They rub their eyes, they hide their yawns And daddy tells a story, old While mommy shares a bedtime song And bedside prayers, on knees, behold A touch of snow, upon the lawn And night will glisten, till the dawn At last the house is silent They're tucked away and sleeping Tomorrow down the winding stairs We'll see them all come leaping The lights are on, the stockings plump And laughter squeals without a stop Then soon the fun begins, unwrapping Treasured moments, worth embracing With faces bright and shining It all takes place on Christmas morn... A magic moment. Just imagine !!! If this was Christmas, everywhere no matter where, or one's belief a new joy could be born

    Your title caught my eye, as my dad is such a Norman Rockwell fan, to the point that my sisters and I, if we found some books on him, gave it as agift. My English term paper in high school was about him. I think you captured his paintings here so well, eep I hope I am right this is Norman Rockwell???...can't help but imagine them as I read it. You always do capture images so well in your poetry. Thank you. I actually have his Christmas book here in my room.I owe you email, I hope soon... Hugs to you dear Carrie, and thank you for being my friend. Sorry if I babble too much here on Rockwell :(
