The Christmas Tree
By La Belle Rouge

The Christmas Tree looked down
There were no gifts beneath him
He felt the beginning of a frown
Sadness began to sweep him

But by the fireside
Sat a father and a mother
A little girl and a little boy
huddled under a blanketís cover

The Christmas tree felt so bad
There would be no toys this year
The thought of it made him so sad
the Christmas Tree shed a tear

He noticed then, to his surprise
expressions of joy on all their faces
and the look of love in their eyes
filled up all the empty spaces

The Christmas Tree learned that night
that the greatest gifts are free
Like what we feel in our familyís love
And the light in the faces we see

2010 La Belle Rouge

It captures the true spirit of Christmas, Belle...after all, the gifts come from within and they are the most precious free willed presents we can give and receive of another. May this season find you in the best spirits...Happy Holidays from me to you La Belle! It's been a wonderful year sharing our poetry. Here's to another year of words and friendships which grow stronger by the year...Blessed Be.

Love Always,

And to think, it was only tree... wait til it gets to be a whole forest! Excuse the punishing pun, and the sappy slogan: never lose sight of the forest for the trees. Now I'm done. Keep writing those lovely poems, please! Merry Christmas.
