Christmas poetry

©Kerrie O'Hearn Marquart

The best gifts are given from the heart
 and often can only be felt there.
Like memories of friends and family
Singing Carols around the tree.

Watching the tree lights in the dark of the room
After Santa has flown by the light of the moon.
Ribbon Candy, nuts and pies
Sleepy children with half-closed eyes
Tired out from playing with the wrappings.

©Kerrie O'Hearn Marquart

Paper wrappings, tinsel, bows
Children peeking on tippy toes
To see what Santa has left behind
From a giant sack, he looked so kind -
A little bit like Daddy.

And under the branches of the tree
Is a little gift to you from me
You'll find it wrapped with all my love
Written on a card with a snow white dove.
And on the mantle where the holly is wound
A gift from you to me...I found.
And hugged it to my heart.
