Gifts Of The Season

My very talented Vietnamese student cut out most of the letters for this poem I wrote several years ago, and shaped it into the shape of a tree:

 

The Christmas tree is a sight to see,

All decorated up ornamentally.

The bulbs all colored, the lights, all bright.

I love to watch it late at night.

The gathering of gifts and family I see

As a child of five in my memory.

And now the gifts have come back to me,

Hanging here on this Christmas tree.

 

There aren’t enough branches on the tree for all the gifts in my life. How about you? I haven’t forgotten about my daughter Angie. But I’m happier when I count my blessings. Happy Holidays to all my dear friends!
