Magical as large flakes of snow, moist and gentle, with no wind to blow;
Sparkling as a frosted field, reflecting colours and brilliancies revealed;
Joyous as a song of Kris Kringle, sung on a sleigh with bells that jingle;
Warming as a cup of hot cider, chasing away the cold and "Brr!";
Sweetening as a candy cane home, worthy of gazing, not just diets to roam;
Thrilling as a child's "One sleep..." Christmas Eve, with anticipation of morning, of gifts to receive;
Hopeful as a letter to Claus, expressing sincere wishes that give parents pause;
Romantic as a fireplace cuddle, when love is expressed through a touch so subtle;
Glorious as a Midnight Mass, celebrating the Gift the Heavens did pass;
Soaring as are voices on High, proclaiming to all "God's Kingdom! 'Tis nigh!";
Wonderful as the thoughts of goodwill, of Peace for all nations we long for still;
Happier than even the best Christmas tree is how your smile brings smiles to me.
Yours... Truly Yours,
Vernon R.J. Schmid
