Poetry Monday

Poetry Monday is the brainchild of Diane of On The Alberta Montana Border (you can find her in my sidebar).  Diane thought Mondays were a little drab and poetry was just what we needed.   Each week she provides us with a theme that we can use, or not.  Why not join us?  It's fun and it's free.  What could go wrong?  Right?

This weeks theme is 'a special Christmas memory'.

Each Christmas came,
each Christmas went.
I felt, each one,
was heaven sent.

Each sparkling light,
each golden star,
each Christmas carol,
note and bar
added to that special glow,
the one that every child knows.

The magic in the dark of night,
excitement causing pain so tight
one could hardly breath
let alone sleep throughout the night.

Friends and family gathered there,
warmth and love for all to share.
The whole day long
the happy throng
celebrated Christmas.

The week of Christmas
saw a trend
of visits
from all our friends.
They came to see the tree alight
glowing darkly in the night.
They came to see what Santa brought,
to make amends o'er what we fought.
For after all, a New Year starts
at the end
of every Christmas

Those days now a hazy dream
as through veils of time I view the scene
But in my heart they will remain
each Christmas was the very same.
Each and every one,
the MOST special memory.


  1. I am very, very glad to hear that your memories of Christmas are so very golden. And sparkle laden.

  2. Lovely words, clearly your childhood Christmas memories are full of love and hope.

  3. Wishing you and yours the happiest Holiday Season. Love Granny Annie

    1. Happy Holidays to you and all the best in the New \Year to come.

  4. You hit the feeling very well!

  5. You had a wonderful childhood, one for all parents to strive to provide for their children.

  6. Merry, Merry Christmas, Delores. Enjoy these days from the eyes of your grandchildren. There is nothing more wonderful than that.

  7. That's a lovely poem. Thank you :)

  8. A wonderful piece as always. Personally, I've always adored Christmas. The interesting part is that there are certainly bad ones that I can remember if I think (particularly early on in my life). But the feeling of good will and love and reciprocity are what always stick with me and so, looking back, those are the things I really remember.

  9. Loved your poem.

    Happy Christmas Wishes to you and yours ...

    All the best Jan
