A White Christmas - Poem by Carla Jean Laglia Esely

'Twas the night before christmas.
With a blanket of white.
That covered the earth all through the night.
The trees sparkled like diamonds.
With a glitter so bright.
That each little twinkle made its own christmas light.
A hope and a prayer a white christmas would be.
Awaiting the dawn so all could see.
The beauty and joy a white christmas does bring.
To the holiday season as carolers sing.
For twas the night before Christmas.
God answered your prayer.
With a blanket of white.
Placed with God's loving care."

    LOVELY POEM, but please correct the capitalization for the word 'Christmas.' Three times it is spelled with a lower case 'c' and once with the correct upper case 'C'. Christmas is a proper name and should always be spelled with a capital. Also, the apostrophe is missing on the second 'twas.' Thank you. :) (Report) Reply
