Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Christmas Trilogy
 

 
Christmas Part 1 - Christmas Tree

Coloured lights and tinsel.
Hang from almost every branch.
Card with little jingles.
Also make their stance.
An angel stands on the top.
Looks down with peace and good will.
The tree is almost ready now.
To stand by the window sill.

Christmas Part 2 - Eager Eyes

With eager eyes they look at the toys.
Then tug at their mother’s arm.
“I want this and I want that.”
Their little voices say.
Their mother smiles and nods.
“But you’ll have to wait until Christmas Day.”
Behind her smile is sadness.
Knowing she can’t afford all they see.
But hopes that they will be happy.
With whatever they receive.

Christmas Part 3 - Christmas Day

Christmas day arrives.
Stockings are first to be explored.
Oranges, apples and sweets.
On their beds adorn.
Mum and Dad are awoke,
at some early hour.
By children’s faces,
filled with laughter and smile.
Saying their presents,
they wish to explore.
Coloured paper and ribbons,
scattered here and there across the floor.
Boys with cars and girls with dolls,
seem to be everywhere.
As for the toys in the shops,
that were wanted, but not bought.
In the excitement of it all.
They are not missed
and very soon forgot.
