The mountain tops glow white

Logan Vincent

1st Place

The mountain tops glow white as a light filled sky

And the beauty of the valley below

Nestled in the glow

Of the moon upon the snow

The wind begins to sigh

And now begins that special time of year

When homes are filled with warmth and cheer

The dashing snowmen down the lane

Wearing top hats and holding canes

Wink at passersby

Shop windows on a slippery street

Glow on every face they meet

Boys and girls in Christmas love

Gaze up at the stars above

Trimming through the clear night sky

And out on every street corner you hear…

I’ll be home soon my love

A man sighs on the phone

And tries to catch the late flight home

I love you my dear

And his babies are at home in bed

Wearing santa hats of red

Waiting for the daddy on Christmas morning

Oh what a gift

And the windows are cold and fogged over

The smell of pine and cookies and milk on the counter

And presents round the tree…

It’s such a silent night

Santa’s over the city in flight

And in the hearts of young and old

As Christmas comes love will unfold

And wrapping cluttered all over the floor

But we won’t bother with it, we won’t touch the door

We’ll just hold each other tight

In front of the firelight

It’s a beautiful sight

And we’re happy tonight

Daddy’s home

Walking in a winter wonderland…..

Mountain tops lay white with the first winters snow, fireplace blazing - no where to go. All the tree leaves have turned from green to red and gold, now they are all gone with the winter winds blow. Kids are out playing - no school today. Hoping that many more days, this snow will stay. Thanksgiving is upon us; Christmas is on its way. Pray that Christ is put back in Christmas, after all it is his day.

Bright lights and Christmas Cheer,

tis the season is oh so near.

Break out the stockings and trim the tree,

ornaments, hot chocolate, and memories.

Be kind to others in all you do,

this time of year may be a hard walk in their shoes!

Give and give and give some more,

It’s part of what this seasons for.

Most of all hold your loved ones tight,

remind each other who was born Christmas Night....
