"Christmas Long Ago"
A Christmas Poem by Jo Geis
Frosty days and ice-still nights.. Fir trees trimmed with tiny lights..
Sound of sleigh bells in the snow.. That was Christmas long ago..
Tykes on sleds and shouts of glee.. Icy-window filigree..
Sugarplums and candle glow.. Part of Christmas long ago..
Footsteps stealthy on the stair.. Sweet-voiced carols in the air..
Stocking hanging in a row.. Tell of Christmas long ago..
Starry nights so still and blue.. Good friends calling out to you..
Life, so fact, will always slow.. For dreams of Christmas long ago..
I will hold Christmas in my heart..
And try to keep it all tte year..
