This is my non sectarian Christmas poem. It's intended for anybody who loves Christmas, no matter what their race, religion, nationality, sex, or any other source of divisiveness.


An icy frieze on drifts of snow
Decorates a dreary day --
Tiny vortexes of wind
Scamper over hills in play.

Sullen, leaden clouds, engorged
With moisture, hover --
Another downy blanket tucks
The woodland under cover.

An eldritch fairyland appears,
With crenellated drifts --
And, slowly, through the cloudbanks,
Some feeble sunlight sifts...

Partridge, quail and rabbit stir
And gambol here and there.
Nature breathes a blessing
On the bracing, wintry air.

Published in THE VILLAGER, December, 1996 and about 30 times since.

The Climbing Boy by Mark Lichterman

Once optioned for a movie, now on Kindle also, "The Climbing Boy" is a magical Christmas tale that deserves to become a new Dickens like classic. The Climbing Boy can now..
