A Christmas Sonnet


What a magical time is christmas time
Yet sweeter still in the days of our youth,
What a magical time is christmas time
Ere we taste the bittersweet morsel, truth.

For that time we're allowed to be children
It is in regard naively assumed,
Such a gift how the world remains hidden
Fore it rears up and our childhoods plumed.

What a companious time is christmas time,
Tis a time for family gathering,
What a companious time is christmas time
Spent by live hearths with gift lathering.

Evergreen needles scattered on the floor
Accompanied by their cold, freshly scent,
Grecian wreaths adorn many-a household door
As the hanging harbingers of Advent.

What a tragical time is Christmas time
For we whose tears fall as the freshest snow,
What a tragical time indeed it is
When you're alone beneath the mistletoe.

Testified too by the silent mouses,
Another Christmas Eve at two houses.

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
