A Christmas story!

A Christmas story of childhood memories in a little German town!

Oh Christmas tree


You’ll forever be


My dearest childhood’s memory!


 


 


They used to sprinkle footprints angel size


And then we’d see the shadows of feet


Scurrying in a hurry, by the light


Under the door


 


The tinkle of little bells and lametta on the Christmas tree


Lots of hurrying and scurrying


Otherwise silence


And dark


 


Huddled close our heartbeats became one


Anticipation


And then O Christmas tree


And Silent night,


And then all the other wonderful Christmas songs


 


Tender, beautiful embracing Christmas and its story


Gentle hugs and kisses


And thankful eyes as big as pancakes


More hugs and kisses, and candies and cake


 


And neighbours would gently drop in


For a warm glass of sweet wine


And someone from the neighbourhood alone


All amongst friends and of Christmas spirit


 


The white wax candles glimmer and throw their shadows


Like angels wings upon the darkened room


Scents of pine of spice and wax


All intermingled into one happy Christmas Eve


 


The town outside bathed in a blanket of snow


A holy quietness permeated every corner


Christmas candles glimmering behind each window


And then trumpets sounding cheers just before mass


 


All was silent, and a following of the Christ child


Entered into his holy sanctuary


Decked out in its finest lights and décor


Halleluiah

Hello Horst,

You have beautifully captured the essence of that to which I am alluding in my "wise-guy" point of view in "I'm Dreaming of a Pink Christmas". We all want to capture such scenes from our youth.... whether or not they actually occurred.

A wonderful job.

Christmas a time of good will and to get together with neigbors and relatives. The smell of the pine branches too decorating the house. I always did love Christmas and always remember too that Jesus is the Reason for the Season. This write is a happy joyful one and I am glad I got into it now. Always can abide a Christmas Story at any time of the year.

The memories of Christmas past always make my heart light. Oh, to go back and re-live those days, even for just a moment or two, would be sheer ecstacy. Thankfully, their imprinted in my mind and heart - especially mid-night Mass.

God bless you. Kathy
