CHRISTMAS TOWN
 
Snowflakes
are gently falling
like feathers from the sky..
As you can see
the Christmas spirit
present
in every child's eye..
The sprarkling lights are shinning
forming prisms in the snow..
And the carolers voices
carry over
giving our hearts
a warming glow..
A rosy cheek
little boy
presses his rounded nose
to the frosted glass,
looking through the toy store window
just in time
to see
the Christmas train zoom past..
Delicious scents
drift through the streets
from the town's bakery store..
With plum pudding
and homemade sweet breads
bringing shoppers back
for more..
The Christmas tree
is front and center
with a scenic view
from every side..
As the shoppers go
from store to store,
and the children wait
for their sleigh ride...
At the end of the street
sits the little church,
where people start to arrive...
To hear the Christmas story
and sing the songs,
that have kept the spirit alive..
The church bells
begin to ring
when the clock in the town square
strikes the hour of nine...
As the little children
are rushing home
to hear their favorite
Christmas rhyme..
Now it's time
for the lights to go out,
so they can drift off to dream,
of the wonderful,
hoped for treasures
that the Christmas morn
will bring..
So little one
close your eyes
and lay down your sleepy head..
For tomorrow
is Christmas morning
and all good children
should be in bed...

WATERBALL
 
Turn it upside down
to commence the snowfall...
Slow wafting flakes descend
covering the earth
with its warm blanket..
The scene gives a serene peacefulness,
as two of heart and soul
walk hand in hand,
through the nights tranquility...
The moon shines through
the snow clouds
and glistens on the frozen lake,
giving young lovers the backdrop
for romance..
