CHRISTMAS SNOW - Singalong!

Here's looking ahead to the Festive Season.  After the 7 sec. intro. on the attached audio instrumental, sing along and spare a thought for those unable to be at home at a precious time.

"At home the Christmas snow is falling

I see it clear so far away

I hear the happy voices calling

See the children at their play

 

Every Yuletide brings its reason

To celebrate old ways before

WHEN CHRISTMAS COMES AROUND

A seasonal re-post of my attempt at a Christmas carol - now that Christmas Eve is upon us.

I'll let the content speak for itself and trust you can follow the words in the absence of a

displayed lyric.

Happy Christmas to all on WOL !

CHRISTMAS SNOW - a song for those far away from home

This published material was written primarily for all those - but especially the men and women in our

armed forces - who have found themselves far from home at Christmas and whose minds go back

to those wonderful times in childhood when waking up to Christmas snow on the ground was magic!

CHRISTMAS IN PAKISTAN

Do they know about Christmas in Pakistan?

Has anyone told the Taliban?

Those callous corrupters of the Koran

Who slaughter kids because they can.

 

"Suffer little children to come unto me" -

Christ's words resonate with minds that are free

But not with Hate on a killing spree

"Suffer...little children!" is Hate's decree.

 

Do they understand Christmas in Pakistan?

Christmas is a time for remembering the past, especially family and friends who are no longer with us.

But humanity is blessed with eternal hope and optimism that serve to keep us going towards.....?????

CHRISTMAS IN LONDON TOWN

Christmas can be many things to many people & its most feared aspect is probably the way

it can emphasise loneliness or want.  My message is "be positive" & grateful for what you

have, whether it be the company of family, friends or just your own.    God Bless Us All!

Posted again - a carol to help the festive mood.

 

"Lift up your voice - let all rejoice

And make a joyful sound

Cast off the care Mankind must bear...

When Christmas comes around"

CHRISTMAS TREE

Is anything sadder than a Christmas tree

Abandoned by the bin bags?

Rejected with the empty cans

Discarded on cold stone flags.

 

Is anything sadder than a Christmas tree

Alone on a NewYear pavement?

It seems to say "Remember me -

And all the joy I once meant".

 

Is anything sadder than a Christmas tree

In a dust-cart  - lost to sight?

It seems to...

THOUGHTS AT CHRISTMAS

This verse is on my profile page but I make no apologies for repeating it here at this time.

How fitting now in deep December,

When days are short and life is low,

That in our hearts we will remember

Those we loved who had to go.

A CHRISTMAS DAY WALK IN DURLEY

Down Heathen Street I set my course

And onward past the inn;

My breast contained a happy heart,

My face a happy grin.

 

Gregory Lane came soon enough

And at a farmyard gate

A mongrel pup barked "hurry up",

Protecting his estate.

 

A pheasant blustered from the brush

And rose high in the air,

And in its rush a startled thrush

Made up a flustere...

WHEN CHRISTMAS COMES AROUND - a carol

This carol is dedicated to Peter Fender and his Philharmonia-Britannica Symphony Orchestra

arts - often combining poetry and music..

A FESTIVE SEASON SUGGESTION

I have completed a Christmas carol and it occurs to me that it would be a fun thing if others

who contribute to WOL blogs could come up with their own.  After all, it's coming up to THAT

time of year and perhaps we can add to the list of carols currently known and loved.  I will

post my own - with a modest audio track - shortly.  So...how about it, fellow weavers of

words - any ...
