Christmas Trees

Silent and snow-dusted,

Slumbering on their feet like sheep

White in the moon,

Huddled together to sleep.

 

Too innocent to fear the harvest,

Too old to anticipate delight,

They stand shoulder to shoulder-

Invincible tonight.

 

And their entire world is ever green,

But for the falling snow.

I concede to the chill to see

The wonder and mystery bestowed

 

No child outgrows.
