'Christmas in July'


Christmas in July? But the weather is hot outside!
Holiday greetings still can bring tear drops to my poetic eyes.
Family and friends get back together again when the Christmas holiday season begin. Christmas is more than brightly colored trees and lights; it is time to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. May we never forget to pay the Christ Child homage on His special day.
Love in Christ Jesus!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

By writng holiday poems for my church members, relatives and friends, I am carrying on the Dubarry family tradition. Mom and I used to write holiday poems, and poems for special occassions. Those poems mainly went to relatives and family friends. Mom is dead now, but the two of us had a dream- writing poetry to benefit non profit organizations.
Why did I write about Christmas in July? I write monthly poems for our church newsletter. I just happened to need a poem for the month of December. By the way, Shannon, our church secretary, helps select the poems. Out of the ones that I submit to her via e-mail.
What did that younger lady think of 'Christmas in July? ' She thought it was a great idea and so do I!

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
