the belle of the ball

My Christmas tree in sparkling dress
stands in my window to impress.
She smiles at all the passersby.
She waves hello.  She is not shy.

She winks at all the trees she sees
in nearby houses on the street.
She seems to shiver with delight
counting the minutes till midnight.

For one late hour wakened from sleep
through the dark house on slippered feet
I crept, while up, to catch a glance
of tinseled Christmas ambiance.

Outside the window daintily 
danced my glittering Christmas tree!
With others down the street and back!
They twirled around the cul-de-sac!

Amazed I gazed quiet and still,
propped against the window sill, till
tired but thrilled I left to resume
much needed rest in my bedroom.

I heard giggling in early light
when she slipped in and stood just right.
But, she leaves needles everywhere
and ornaments dropped here and there.

She’ll have her fun till New Year’s Day, 
then take a nap all tucked away.
Next year she’ll dress and dance again
with all her many merry friends.

    The Christmas tree dance sounds wonderful. I'll have to keep an eye on my tree. P.S. good luck on contest.

    I looked up to see if you had labeled this personification, as I think it is a terrific example of it. I had not even noticed the rhyming I was so thrilled with your terrific job at personification. I really liked this so much!
