A Christmas Dream

A Christmas Dream, Margaret Mair, original art

A child dreams
Of a world outside
Where stars sprinkle light
Through a darkened sky
And the bare tree
Waits to grow green again
Standing rooted in an earth
That spins steadily
Round the circle of time
From long dark nights
To sun-filled days.
Inside light glows
And warm decorations
Gleam cheerfully
In the prickly embrace
Of the evergreen boughs,
And still he gazes
And longs to be out
Among the peaceful trees
Under heaven’s glowing arc
Following a star path
Through the soft murmurs
And restless rustling
Of the night-bathed world
To a morning sunrise
Glowing with hope,
Illuminating beauty,
Anticipating the warmth
Of a day touched by love.
