The Magic of Christmas

Doily, fruits, nuts and cake.
The smell of fresh-cut pine.
Sharing cards and presents;
Worshiping the divine.

Like stars, lights are blinking
And twinkling all around.
Kids laughing… fire crackling
And snow piles on the ground.

Something is whispering
That special time of year!
"Christmas!" Oh, it's Christmas!
Oh, Christmastime is here.

I think of years gone by
The magic in the air
With peaceful surroundings
Of hope, and joy, and cheer.

And then from dusk to dawn,
The angels are stirring;
Touching lives with blessings,
While heaven is cheering.
