Christmas Hearts Are Singing

by Joan E.

See the star atop the tree
Make your wish and feel the glee

It's the bountiful season
With joy beyond all reason

Silver bells and mistletoe
Dreams aglow with flakes of snow

Sounds of carols fill the air
Scented candles chase all care

Gingerbread cookies surround
Wreaths of pine where cones abound

Holly sprays its emerald leaves
Like memories of old eves

Christmas seems to come in twelves
With its chorus of coy elves

Hear the sleigh bells drawing near
Santa soon will reappear

See the star atop the tree
Make your wish and set it free


Holiday Poetry contest entry


I was thinking like a Dodekaphile (someone who loves the number 12) focusing on the unusual assembly of numbers in 12/12/12 (extended to minutes and seconds!) and had fun writing these holiday lyrics. Since I can't write music, hopefully you can sing along to the beat of your own drummer boy!

Many thanks to cleo85 for allowing me to borrow her artwork that includes my wish "...and Peace to man and earth."

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
