My Joy

Leaves drained of their vibrant green

Snow gently falling on the ground,

Deer sneaking around in the meadow

All without making a sound.


Winter is here with slick, icy roads

With COVID and others to boot,

Thanksgiving is around the corner

And then we get our Christmas loot!


Family is the name of the game

Friends are welcome too,

Friends are family we pick

Bonds stuck together like glue.


Joy beams from my heart

I love this time of year!

For the birth of our Savior

My family, friends and my dear

              Great time of year but brrrrr isn't it cold. Great tribute to our entering this strange winter ahead.

              P.S. There is hard evidence which proves Jesus was not born in winter at all. The winter celebration we now call christmas was hijacked by the christian churches from an older pagan celebration at this time of year. The facts are all freely available on google. However, it's great tradition which I wouldn't try to change.

              • Christina8

                Oh no I totally agree, we have no idea what time jesus was born, definitely not in the winter season, but the christians had to pair it with the Yule.

                Thanks for enjoying my poem, I plan to be around more often. :) Christina
