poet- M. Nora Boylan
C is for the Christ who came
To this lowly earth.
H is for the harps that rang
At our Saviour’s birth.
R is for the ringing bells,
I is for the crystal ice
Where we go to slide.
S is for the schoolboy’s sled
When he coasting goes.
T is for poor Tommy Jones
Jack Frost bit his nose.
M is for the merry part
On this Christmas day,
A is for the apple pies
Grandma put away.
S is for old Santa Claus,
Coming here tonight.
2. Our World:
poet- Catherine Pulsifer
Christmas is a time for children
That is for certain
But for others
It is time to love your brothers.
A time where we do see peace,
Where fighting actually does cease.
Giving gifts and sharing with all,
When the world seems anew.
Like that first Christmas morn,
When Jesus was born.
A miracle that happened long ago,
Still stops our world and shines a glow.
3. Practice Jesus:
If we practiced Jesus every way,
It’d be like Christmas every day;
If we, like Him, were meek and mild
And loved each woman, man, and child,
If we’d read our Bible, it’d remind us,
So that every single day would find us
More and more in sweet accord
With our sweet Jesus–Master, Lord.
Then every day that we’re alive
Would be like December 25.
4. Christmas Meditation:
Poet- Martha Snell Nicholson
Suppose that Christ had not been born
That far-away Judean morn.
Suppose that God, whose mighty hand
Created worlds, had never planned
A way for man to be redeemed.
Suppose the wise men only dreamed
That guiding star whose light still glows
Down through the centuries. Suppose
Christ never walked here in men’s sight,
Our blessed Way, and Truth, and Light.
Suppose He counted all the costs,
And never cared that we were lost,
And never died for you and me,
Nor shed His blood on Calvary
Upon a shameful cross. Suppose
That had died, He never rose,
And there was none with power to save
Our souls from death beyond the grave!
As far as piteous heathen know,
These things that I’ve “supposed” –
5. “Little Tree” :
little silent Christmas tree
you are so little
you are more like a flower
who found you in the green forest
and were you very sorry to come away?
see I will comfort you
because you smell so sweetly
I will kiss your cool bark
and hug you safe and tight
just as your mother would,
only don’t be afraid
look the spangles
that sleep all the year in a dark box
dreaming of being taken out and allowed to shine,
the balls the chains red and gold the fluffy threads,
put up your little arms
and I’ll give them all to you to hold
every finger shall have its ring
and there won’t be a single place dark or unhappy…
6. Music on Christmas Morning”:
poet- Anne Brontë
Music I love - but never strain
Could kindle raptures so divine,
So grief assuage, so conquer pain,
And rouse this pensive heart of mine -
As that we hear on Christmas morn,
Upon the wintry breezes borne.
Though Darkness still her empire keep,
And hours must pass, ere morning break;
From troubled dreams, or slumbers deep,
That music kindly bids us wake:
It calls us, with an angel’s voice,
To wake, and worship, and rejoice;
7. A friend greeting:
I’d like to be the sort of friend
that you have been to me;
I’d like to be the help that you’ve been
always glad to be;
I’d like to mean as much to you
each minute of the day
As you have meant, old friend of mine,
to me along the way.
I’d like to do the big things
and the splendid things for you,
To brush the gray out of your skies
and leave them only blue;
I’d like to say the kindly things
that I so oft have heard,
And feel that I could rouse your soul
the way that mine you’ve stirred.
I’d like to give back the joy
that you have given me,
Yet that were wishing you a need
I hope will never be;
I’d like to make you feel
as rich as I, who travel on
Undaunted in the darkest hours
with you to lean upon.
I’m wishing at this Christmas time
that I could but repay
A portion of the gladness
that you’ve strewn along the way;
And could I have one wish this year,
this only would it be:
I’d like to be the sort of friend
that you have been to me.
8:From us to you:
It’s Christmas time,
And I wish you well.
May the Lord bless you
With the best of health.
I hope the stockings are hung
And you’re filled with wonder.
There are so many surprises
For you to ponder.
May your children are merry
When Santa brings toys.
Some for the girls
And some for the boys.
I pray you to have food
And plenty to eat:
Turkey and gravy
And lots of sweets.
I hope your family’s there,
Friends and neighbors, too.
So merry Christmas
From all of us to all of you.
9. Christmas As A Holiday:
poet– Nicholas Gordon
Christmas is a holiday for friends,
However, they may be, or not, related.
Remember that the three wise kings were strangers
In search of one remote, uncanny dream.
So may we all be far more than we seem,
Together bound for dark and haunting changes,
More lovely for the loves we have created
Along the lonely paths from means to ends,
Stumbling towards that star of Bethlehem.
10. Jesus Is The Reason;
poet– Joanna Fuchs
In Bethlehem, God gave to us
The source of Christmas joy;
A star is shown on a miracle:
The virgin birth of a boy.
He was born both God and man,
A Savior for us all,
The way to get to our heavenly home,
If we just heed His call.
So as we shop and spend and wrap
And enjoy the Christmas season,
Let’s keep in mind the sacred truth:
Jesus is the reason.
11. Short Merry Christmas Poem for Friends:
Merry Christmas to friends!
Merry Christmas to foes!
The world’s bright with joy, so
Forget all your woes.
The earth’s full of beauty, of
Love and good cheer.
Merry Christmas to all.
My Best Friends And Dears.
12. Christmas Wishes Poem:
A time of blessings and happiness.
A time of caroling and songs.
A time for giving thanks.
A time for presents for all.
A time of good cheer and friendship.
A time of love for all.
A time for helping others.
But most of all Christmas is a time
to stop and thank God for all that we have.
13. Year-Round Joy:
Christmas is full of shiny things
That sparkle, gleam and glow.
These holiday pleasures dazzle us,
And yet, deep down, we know…
That Christmas has its special gifts,
But our year-round joy depends
On the cherished people in our lives,
Our family and friends.
14. My Friends, My Angels:
I believe in angels
Those helpers who are near
Exactly when they’re needed most,
Then seem to disappear.
I know them when I see them
Whatever their disguise
They’re patient and encouraging
Resourceful, kind, and wise
Yes, I believe in angels
The kind that heaven sends
And I’m surrounded every day
I call friends.
God gave me someone special
When He gave me
A special friend like you
Have a Blessed Christmas! 15. The Nicest Present:
poet-Joanna and Karl Fuchs
Under the tree, the gifts enthrall,
But the nicest present of them all
Is filling our thoughts with those who care,
Want our Christmas joy to share.
To you, whom we’re often thinking of,
We send our holiday joy and love.
