North wind whistling in the trees Wishing for the pond to freeze The crispness of new fallen snow Bring thoughts of Christmas long ago * Pine trees laced with twinkling lights Frosty days and ice cold nights Snuggling in front of the fire's glow All part of Christmas long ago * Red stockings hung with loving care Poinsettia and holly everywhere Gathering pine cones in the snow That was Christmas long ago * Golden bells hung on the door Tree decorated from ceiling to floor Shoppers rushing to and fro Tell of Christmas long ago * Tiny footsteps on the stairs Hands clutching little Teddy bears Listening for Santa's "Ho, Ho, Ho" Were dreams of Christmas long ago * The family gathered together again Neither death nor distance to break the chain Singing carols by the candle glow Remembering Christmas long ago * Kathleen McCoy Eldridge© September 27, 2006 All Rights Reserved
