Christmas Comes

Updated on December 18, 2016


Christmas comes...the commercial side is making preparations,

While the young, the children fair, exhibit all their expectations.

Sales on sell everywhere, presents of all descriptions to be had.

Bright lights of promise drape the scenes, caroling by all to add.

Christmas comes...in towns all around the wide countryside,

Happiest thoughts and dreams in children's minds to reside.

Those fortunate ones who see a tree and presents beneath,

Lights on all their houses and on the front doors, a big wreath.


Christmas comes...in all the shanty towns, children still all hold on,

Wishing and hoping that Santa Clause will come to visit their home.

My old proprietor, small grocer in the town, always had this in mind,

Sent me many a time, turkey and candy in hand, kid's homes to find.



Christmas comes...the special times as a teacher of those in need,

The tree in the classroom, bright tinsel on walls, fine hopes to seed.

A tradition of this very important season, and its best values to instill,

As a steward of such, all appreciated so much, our hearts to reveal.

      All the preparation of hearts and homes and the build up of anticipation, especially among the little ones - it's all part of Advent and what a special time of the year this is! Love your poem and the images, too.
