Tinsel sparkling on trees that toys lie beneath, Holly with berries and the hanging of the wreath. Everything is red and ever-green. Hearth and home are comforting; Evening is nigh. As the snow begins to flurry, Radiant we see the stars in the sky Tonight. Oh, Holy Night the angels sang beneath one special star. Can you Feel the way the shepherds felt back then so long ago? Commercialism of the Yuletide season, However, was never supposed to be the Reason. Is there something different that we Should be doing? Take a moment to reflect. What really matters? Make a promise to the babe whose birth you celebrate At this precious time. Do for others the whole year long and Share your heart!

I applaud this! It is delightful and took talent to compose. Should I seek an original version? The message is fantastic and the delivery makes sure the message is absorbed by the reader. I see this on a Christmas Card ... CayCay

Andrea Congratulations on being POTD. I agree we should share our heart all year round. We really can't take anything or anyone for granted. We need to concentrate on what really matters and to me that is letting those I love know they are loved. I Loved this poem :)

Beautifully done Andrea. Loved it and the beautiful pic. Sorry it took so long to get back to you but every now and then I have to take a little time off or I burn out with all my other responsibilities. Thanks so much for the kind words on my "Say Whut?" God Bless, JB
