Holly and mistletoe…

“I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 “Holly and mistletoe
Candles and bells,
I know the message
That each of you tells.”
Leland B. Jacobs, Mrs. Ritters First Grade Critters

 “A full moon shines
over the morning frost;
the lanes are full of late-fallen leaves;
walking across the mulch
is almost as tricky
as treading over ice.

In town the carol-singers are in
crowding the shopping-mall,
while a group of muffled musicians
play by the outside market.

This year but two robins
on the early Christmas cards;
the squirrel still runs along the fence
skirting our newly-erected shed.”
Gerald England, Mid-December, Famous Poets
