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."

    absolutely brilliant, I reread and enjoyed the entire poem immensely, as regards spelling errors, this indicates probably the poem was written swiftly and I think we all know exactly what is meant and how to correct the grammar which spoilt my delight not in the slightest, so thanks to the editor for overlooking grammar and posting 'A White Christmas' by Carla Jean Laglia Esely because I absolutely loved it :) :) :) and am voting it 10+++ (Report) Reply

    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

    This poet submitted all five of her poems on January 2,2003 and probably hasn't logged in since. No corrections have been made.
