The Spirit of Christmas

Regina Puckett


Sprigs of holly

A time to be jolly

Children calmly waiting

Red and green bulbs illuminating

If only those in charge of wars would cease

And let us enjoy a brief moment of hope and peace

But the bombs will still fall and mothers will continue to cry

As the spirit of Christmas is left to bleed out and die
