The twinkle and flash of Christmas tree lights,
Leap through the darkness of cold winter nights,
Piercing the crystal of clear icy air,
Leaving bright brilliant trails everywhere;
A dazzling holiday feast of delights.
The ornaments hung on limbs glow and gleam,
And dance in the grandeur Christmas lights beam.
Each one a memoir of glad memories,
Stirring such happy yuletide reveries,
They softly beget a delightful dream.
Yet all of the twinkle, the lights one sees,
Through crystalline windows with practiced ease,
Dance on naturally lush tapestries,
Framed by organic, verdant fantasies:
The beautiful backdrop of lush green trees.
In all the wonder of flashing lights and sparkling ornaments, sometimes we fail to appreciate the beauty of the tree.
