Holiday giving tree

I have no money to buy a gift
Thru my crafts, I decide to sift.

There's tape and scissors, paper & glue
There's bags & folders & boxes too,

I choose a round box that has a top
My wheels are turning, I can't stop.

I want to make this box just right
Even tho' the lid fits tight.

I measure & cut, mark and trace
This box has no need for lace.

I get the paper glued on straight
For you to see, I just can't wait.

I hope you like this piece of art
This homemade gift comes from the heart.

Great rhyme and rhythm in this poem. You sound like you are a lover of the Christmas season. I am too. Nothing like a lighted tree to warm the heart on a cold, snowy night. Just thought I would mention this, too: I have a sister-in-law named Fonda. Thanks for the nice write.

Hello Fonda,
(You remind me of Jane-just kidding) Nice poem and full of meaning. The truth about giving is not the gift but the heart content of the giver.
"What brings joy to the heart is not the friend's gift but the friend's love." And it is true that what our hands make is always A WORK OF ART.
Thanks for such a wonderful poem!

I am blessed,
