...an ageless lesson to be learned (a repost, 'cause it's my favorite :o)






“Where do you come from, little snowman?” I ask
“From where winds blow so cold” says he.
”And why are you here?” I demand with a smile.
To remind you how happy you should be.
For the Earth is covered in a blanket so white,
a shimmering blanket of tranquility;
to remind you of my friend, Mr. Santa Claus,
who’ll bring to your heart such glee.”


“And what more will he bring me?” I want to know.
Bright lights of blue, red, green and gold,
to remind you of the Birth so long ago
that the angels told shepherds to behold;
in the town of Bethlehem far away,
they traveled to where they were told.
Under dark blue skies they ventured
to see the Babe with eyes so bold
.”

“Do I know this Babe?” I asked of him.
I hope you do, He is your Best Friend.
And when your heart is saddened
He’s with you for it to mend.
He’ll bring you happiness when you give up hope;
He’ll bring a rainbow ‘round the next bend
.”
“And will the rainbow have gold for me?”
“N
ot just gold, but life everlasting through eternities end

“All this from one little Babe?” I wonder aloud.
Oh, yes…all this and much more, you will see;
just believe, have faith and be proud.
Remember to give thanks for all that will be;
remember to celebrate this Holy Birth,
not just for gifts laden under a tree.
For your time is so precious on this Earth,
celebrate all things this Christmas Eve
.” 

“Thank you, Mr. Snowman, I didn’t know,
I thought Christmas was for gifts and fun.”
And you’re right, little child,” says this man of snow,
but remember the most precious gift for everyone:
The Babe born that special night, Christmas Eve.
The Babe who angels called Glorious.
Join with your loved ones and all who believe,
Rejoice, and have a Joyful Christmas!”


“Thank you, again, Mr. Snowman. Now I know.”

I return your Christmas kiss adding that of my wife Liliane and that scamp of Nicholas (he doesn't kiss much the blighter). This is a most beautiful poem and you should post it every Christmas. Victor
