The Christmas Porch





The Christmas porch is special
It smiles its greeting bright
In ever-green good wishes
Of wreath-garland delight

Its festive splash reminds us  
That Christmas time is near
Spilling to street and sidewalk
Warm rays of Christmas cheer

Oh, may the Hope it stands for
Re-ignite in us anew
Glowing, not just at Christmas
But each day all year through

Last week one night my daughter and I car-pooled, requiring me to walk quite a number of blocks to where she had parked the van…it was so much fun to admire the personal touches smiling good wishes from many porches.
