BANNER MOUNTAIN GIRL # 52 Christmas on the Mountain

Oh, it’s Christmas on the mountain
and the stars are burning bright
when the cool dark of December
spreads into the blackened night.

Oh, it’s Christmas on the mountain
and the snowflakes twirl and swirl
when the cool dark of December
turns each flake into a pearl.

When it’s Christmas on the mountain,
the wild creatures run to play
in the cool dark of December
on the eve of Christmas Day.  © Freeda Baker Nichols

Country Christmas — a poem

Country Christmas

Christmas in the country,
cedar trees in white,
moonbeams shine upon them
and decorate the night.

Animals recite
a Christmas carol of old,
retell the Christmas story
among the forest fold.

Stars look down and glisten,
a peacefulness begins
and drops a net around the earth
at Christmastime again.
