Poem: Covid-19 Against Christmas Magic

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Covid-19 against Christmas magic is about her looking at a snowglobe. She hears the elves at Santa Land grumbling behind masks. Mrs.Claus wants Santa to postpone Christmas until the virus is over but Saint Nick says he must sprinkle Christmas magic across the globe to remind them of baby Jesus.

Covid-19 Against Christmas Magic

As she shakes her North Pole snow globe,

she hears Santa's sleigh bells

in the distance,

she listens to the elves grumble

with words muffled behind a mask.


Their tiny fingers diligently sewing

the perfect N95 masks

to snuggly fit the jolly man and his reindeer,

before the big night

when he journeys across the globe.


Mrs. Claus nags Saint Nick,

begging him to stay home this year

or postpone Christmas

until after the vaccine works.


He gently kisses her forehead

shaking his rosey cheeks,

chuckling with words of wisdom

from the heavens above.


The world needs Christmas magic

sprinkled on all corners of the globe,

to unite people

reminding them of baby Jesus

before Christmas morning.


Once people from all walks of life come together

remembering God’s greatest gift,

feeling his presence inside their hearts

the coronavirus will no longer rule their lives,

for there is hope and peace

in the comfort of God’s arms.

Maurice,

I did read your poem.

I am with you...coronavirus needs to expire!

The words in your poetry describe it's fury.

Somehow I don't think the hear destroys it for we had summer and it is stronger now that we are headed towards winter.

Take care and have a great Christmas season.

I hope i can catch your work again soon.

This is a very thoughtful poem to remind us of the christmas feeling. The Covid-19 is around but we must not allow it to steal our joy.

God's light is always there for us.

We need to remember the true meaning of Christmas this year more than ever.

A mixture of God's Light and Christmas, with some serious and even Light-hearted stuff about Sister Corona. A touch of hope mixed in.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on December 06, 2020:

Pamela,

We are hoping for a great Christmas this year with family, but if we have to go it alone we will be fine too.

We have a tree and our managing to keep the Christmas spirit.

Trusting in God helps me to cope with this virus.

I hope the season treats you well.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on December 06, 2020:

Thank you.

I think this year we need to remember the true meaning more than ever.

Enjoy the season...even if it is a little low key.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on December 06, 2020:

Cheers to you for bringing up the true meaning of Christmas. It can be celebrated more quietly this year. Merry Christmas!

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on December 06, 2020:

I enjoyed reading your cute poem, Brenda. Maybe we can enjoy Christmas after this year of so much focus on the virus. I think trusting God lets us worry less and enjoy the season with our families, at least the ones who live near us.
