FOR US TO
GATHER ROUND, A
TREE TO KEEP US SAFE
AND SOUND, A TREE TO BRIGHTLY
LIGHT OUR WAY, A TREE TO SHELTER
US EACH DAY, SAVING US FROM WINTER’S
COLD, ITS STORY GLAD AND FOREVER TOLD,
GREEN BRANCHES COMFORTING THOUGH WILD
BEND LOW TO TOUCH THE NEWBORN CHILD, AS NEAR
AND FAR THEY COME TO SEE, THE TINY BABE OF PROPHECY,
AS THEY KNEEL FOR A BLESSED TIME IS NEAR, TO FREE US ALL
FROM HATE AND FEAR, THE LITTLE CHILD SLEEPS DEEP AND SWEET,
WHILE BEASTS AND BIRDS SURROUND HIS FEET, AND BANDS OF ANGELS
Very cool shape poem. They’re not as easy as you make them look!!!
To all a Happy New Year of Poetry
Thanks so much!
You always make me happy with your poems Annette. Now during these hard times, your poem made me happy and gave me thoughts of our family’s happy Christmas past. I love you my Sister!!!
