This is the first year that my children have been old enough to anticipate Christmas but still young enough to have that delightful sense of wonder. My daughter (5) in particular, is in such a state of excitement about life as a whole at the moment, that Christmas almost pales in comparison.
I appreciate Hedgewitch's comments on Christmas at dVerse this week, and so this poem seemed appropriate to share.
“Quick, come quickly! Come and see! “
Joyfully, she calls to me,
Immersed in wonder, bathed in light,
Entwined in flutters of delight.
She scampers, dancing through the grass
Stooping, laughing, shooting past
And watching her, my heart expands
With love, as I reach for her hand.
Her smile lights up her face and eyes
As she unwraps each new surprise
Hidden in the earth and sky,
And catching clouds that pass her by.
I would love to hear your thoughts, and after you comment, please hop on over to dVerse to read some outstanding poetry. Merry Christmas to you all - the kind of Christmas that is full of meaning, not just tinsel.
