Christmas Card

A pale blue haze hangs heavily over the earth Or it seems to on this beautiful Christmas card Announcing the miracle of sweet Jesus’s birth A pale blue haze hangs heavily over the earth The manger scene, an unlikely common berth, A story told time and again by the poet bard A pale blue haze hangs heavily over the earth Or it seems to on this beautiful Christmas card.

this triolet is as delicate as any Christmas card and prettily penned.

Thanks so much, Caren. This is a rework of one I wrote some time ago. When I read it, it had one line too many, so I fixed that and reposted it for a contest.

They certainly convey the message of Christmas Milton. I find nativity cards are getting harder to find each year which is a real shame. Tom

It's far too expensive a thing to do nowadays, considering the cost of the cards and the postage. Our list got completely out of control, so we just stopped doing it.
