Christmas in a Box.

Glittering, shiny baubles,
branching green tree,
cards on long ribbons,
{and in the middle? Me!}
Packing Christmas in a box,
storing it all away,
just holding it as a memory
until next Christmas day.

But what about “peace on earth”,
and “goodwill to men,”
are they to be packed away
till Christmas comes agen?

We should keep Christmas every day
in deed and word and thought;
or else all the trimmings that we had
mean absolutely naught.
So amid the want, the fear and fighting
that seems part of this current world,
may peace and hope, goodwill and love,
throughout our “everyday” day be swirled.
