Christmas Poem by Dawn Payne


It’s that magic time again

Families sharing Joy making sure there’s a

toy for every girl and boy.

Frosty finger rosy cheeks sipping hot

chocolate, this moment they have been

waiting for weeks Chestnuts roasting

marshmallow toasting. Is there something

missing? Ah yes mistletoe for kissing

Apple bobbin ready for fun. Oh what a cheer!

someone has won.

The tree stands all aglow; little coloured lights

cascading from head to toe, and what is at

the top so far a brightly shining star!

Delights hang, tinsel baubles, chocolate coins

candy canes. Stockings hung up with all

their names Presents around the tree

bright russly paper tied with bows

all adorn waiting to be opened for

Christmas morn.
