Thanksgiving's gone;December's here It's time to decorate Christmas is three weeks away So, there's no time to wait Drag out the dusty boxes Filled with Christmas decorations Turn the house into a wonderland For our yearly celebration Bring in the tree with its piney smell And stand it by the fireplace String it with the sparkling lights As the season we embrace Lovely ornaments, both old and new Are hung with tender care Missing those who have gone beyond Grateful for those still here It's time to place the angel, now In her place right on the top The tree is finally finished Tomorrow, we can shop Keeping secrets, wrapping gifts Hanging each Christmas stocking Outside, the night is crisp and cold To the malls we'll soon be flocking The day has been so wonderful We sit by the fire's glow Sipping chocolate with marshmallows List'ning to the cold wind blow Perhaps, in all our merriment We've overlooked the reason That Jesus' birth has led us to Celebrate this wonderful season We bow our heads in earnest And thank Him for every blessing Remembering Him this Christmastime Priorities reassessing Kathleen McCoy Eldridge© November 17, 2005 All Rights Reserved
