A Christmas Tradition

By RICK BESSETTE

Out in the meadow
Planted row onto row,
Christmas trees laden
With fresh fallen snow.

Trees of all sizes,
There were shapes of all kind,
Meet wandering guests
Just searching to find,

That one perfect tree
To put in a stand.
Decorated with lights,
Placed gently by hand.

And just for a while
This holiday season,
Take comfort in peace,
Reflect on its reason.

Wishing you joy, peace
And blessings
This holiday season.
2018
