Please Come In, Dear Friend

Fashion a memory, with our bright winter scene
The morning brought snow, fresh fallen and clean
Find a snug shelter, from the sharp frigid air
Welcome to my holiday home, at this special time of year

Dry your wet mittens, and warm your red nose
Stand by the fire that sparkles and glows
Warm up by the embers,  but don't get too near
Welcome to my holiday home, at this special time of year

Stand by the window, there's a new dusting of snow!
The children are playing, while the snow balls are thrown
Watch how they laugh as their voices ring clear
Welcome to my holiday home, at this special time of year

Forget all your loneliness, add a smile to your face
We offer handshakes and hugs, and a welcoming place
A warm place to rest and a meal and some cheer
Welcome to my holiday home, at this special time of year

Come for a moment, or come in for a day
Leave all your cares behind, put your worries away
There is friendship and comfort, to dry all your tears
Welcome to my holiday home, at this special time of year

If there's no one to love you,  we have plenty to spare
A haven is waiting, where somebody cares 
Please come in and warm up, ....now hang your coat there....
Welcome to my holiday home, at this special time of year

There is a unique warmness in this wonderful & brilliant write my friend. For a moment I found myself amid the friendly atmosphere of your great Holiday Home. Incidentally, the theme of your Poem appears to me so cool from a warm hearted friend that none of us would resist this beautiful invitation to join your wonderful Home. In India, we also believe in the tradition of treating our Guest, like the messenger of God. Your Poem is so close to that. Great great write. Ravindra..C Richards

carrie, I like how you focused on the "do" and not just the "what to see" at your home. It was all about interation and the spirit of love and joy. I bet it does well. Love it. Andrea
