Green Trees

Green Trees

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.
