“I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”
― Charles Dickens
Deep in a snowy forest glen
furry red pups scamper and play
in waning light of Christmas day
before they’re called home to their den.
Perched on a limb a winter wren
sings a bright song in lands afar
when from the sky a falling star
illuminates twilight’s soft fade;
In a manger, a swaddled babe
has come to heal all mankind’s scars.
