This Christmas, Let A New Sweetness Begin

Call in more than the lovely old Christmasey sweetness:

White Christmas, bright Christmas. I’m under mistletoe — give me your kiss.

After a tough year, we wait so eagerly.

When will it be given? Our must-have. That usual, wonderful, peace.

Blog-Buddies, usually I wouldn’t do this to you regular readers. But today I came across a Christmas poem from ages ago, before I started blogging. This one was written about a zillion years ago, a.k.a. 2004.

Yet I’m going to make it live here, yes a second poem from me this year. (Still awaiting ones from the rest of you. And thanks for private emails appreciating my official Christmas Poem for this year, already posted.)

Around here, as with you perhaps, it’s a decorating, card-sending, winter-without-snow wonderland. Mostly I’m doing a lot of planning, dreaming, and hoping about the new year.

The Annual Christmas Poem

At the Messiah Sing-Along

Don’t you make me just stand in the audience.
No, I must go spinning down, turning in and around.
Into singers I’ll jump, into words, into sound.

Giving Christmas 2008


It can be hard to give when there is fear.
