~ Christmas Call to Action ~

by ladyliterati

 

Christmas candles all aglow
Outside, swirling, whirling,drifting snow
Soft and low ole Bing is singing
The ‘Bells of Christmas’ ringing, ringing

Presents scattered beneath the tree
Ribbons, bows; silver-gold mystery
Tiny hands reaching, eyes of delight
Reflecting flickering colors bright

The season of giving, of thankful hearts
Reunions of families living miles apart
Stories of old cheerfully shared
Current blessings in praise declared:

The giving to others, those in great need
With open hearts graciously received
Tis the theme, season, truthful meaning
Tis the hand of God intervening

My opinion…Christmas should last all year
Imagine life’s changed, poverty to disappear
Tiny tummies fully feed, hunger- a ghost of past
The homeless, our Veterans sheltered at last

Perhaps the greatest Christmas call should be
A universal attempt at harmony; the savior of humanity!
