A Christmas of Hope and Peace

"Christmas is not just a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy is to have the real spirit of Christmas." - Calvin Coolidge
* * * * * ** * * * * * * * * Christmas season is the time for singing holiday songs and choirs praising Jesus, our Savior, in reverent hymns. They honor the child who was born to right man's wrongs. The glow of candlelight flickers as each flame slowly dims. It's a world in which white quilts cover bare tree limbs. * * * * * * * * With joy I welcome the sweet silence of new-falling snow. In virginal purity, it tumbles, appearing so velvety soft. Crystalline flakes frost the panes as I look out my window and see somber gray clouds, hovering in the skies aloft while children build a snowman across the village croft. * * * * * * * * * Mantles are carefully draped with boughs of holly and pine as lights are strung and ornaments hung on Christmas trees. A golden star on the tallest branch shines gloriously divine. Gathering near the fireside, families are making memories. The scene resembles a snow globe full of winter fantasies. * * * * * * * * * * Christmas delivers a message of hope and peaceful repose, first gifted to the entire world on the night of Jesus' birth. In the spirit of the season, poets are motivated to compose, verses that express the magical mood of joviality and mirth where goodwill and brotherhood spreads across the earth. * * * * * * * * * Writing Challenge - Write A Christmas Poem 11/30/22 ~ Contest sponsored by Constance La France
