Christmas tree

God of Love

Sent a gift wonderful


for men below not above

and made giving so meaningful


a tree with branches we have

with shelter and a nest

with trunk and a place to perch

for an easy climb


its a quiet night until a baby is born

the wise men walked the night cold

sending frankincense

not forgetting gold


and kept the tree for us here


christmas trees shed their leaves hereafter

spreading love to the unloved


singing out love abroad

holding hands

and a round table dinner

a thank you to the good that came across


christmas brings excitements

the colours


and the sights

a great feeling for those in respite


new songs that never sung

come home singing

silver bells that never rung

go about ringing

merry christmas !!
