Christmas Eve of Old

A sacred song of long ago is sung with reverence, high and low Sweet harmonies that the angels hear is the music of a Midnight Clear A velvet night while stars appear Old carols sung on captured ear Around a piano, where candles glow Outside the air, with breath of snow A fireside, where flames enchant Old memories, from lips recant 'Neath mistletoe, two lovers kiss A soul renewed, a spirit lifts Some lift their glass to make a toast While others sing of Heavenly Host Beneath a tree, the children guess Then off to bed, with kisses blessed In harmony that the angels hear Sweet music about a Midnight Clear

Always the sentimental ... the lover of the beautiful, the singer of sweet memories ... always the true friend, the inspiration that makes you feel belonging ... especially when you write a comment on a poem of mine, especially just to see your name so special there ... always I read your poems patiently chewing them for their pure delight. Thanks, with compliments of the season.

Takes me right back to my childhood and many wonderful Christmas memories...being a music lover like you, my favorite carols are 'The First Noel' and 'Oh Come all Ye Faithful' sung by a huge choir accompanied by an orchestra....Merry Christmas! - Tim
