The Scent of Christmas
I love the smells of Christmas
that abound this time of year,
the smell of cookies baking
as mulled cider scents the air;
the smell of turkey roasting
and of chestnuts on the fire,
the sound of church bells tolling
as snowflakes frost the spire.
I love the smells of Christmas,
when joy perfumes the air-
of John with brown eyes shiny bright
and Al with golden hair.
They smell of fresh-scrubbed faces
as they tumble into bed,
while thoughts of toys and Christmas plays
go rushing through their heads.
I love the smells of Christmas-
the fragrance of the tree,
the scent of fir and pinecones
bringing memories back to me:
of Christmas past and present,
of a childhood long since passed,
of gifts received and given
and of Christmas joys amassed.
Lord, help me give my children
that which was given me:
Christmas as a time when dreams
came true beneath a tree.
When life was filled with happiness,
goodwill was felt by all,
And the house was filled
with food and drink
for friends who came to call.
God bless the Ghost of Christmas Past
and may he come again,
to rest in warmth and comfort
in the hearts of all good men.
May your Christmas be a merry one,
and the New Year happy, too.
May the spirit of this season fill
your life the whole year through.
I hope you and yours have a Blessed Christmas
and a wonderful holiday season. Come back soon.
