THOUGHTS AT CHRISTMAS - a seasonal re-post

entry picture

How fitting now in deep December

When days are short and spirits low,

That in our hearts we will remember

Those we knew who had to to go.

 

Christmas hours are briefly bright,

Their spark is spent in Winter's pay

And soon surrenders to the night

When light retreats and fades away.

 

But O how wonderful this living!

How magical this life we own,

That we are given to go on giving

When Time takes those that we have known.

Thanks for the appreciated responses. It happens to be a
personal favourite among my own poems and seems to
fit perfectly to the feeling of life passing by that can be experienced at Christmas, especially as we get older.

Nice one Mark,

It encapsulates some of what it is to be human, to treasure the memories and however difficult it can be, to endure and revel in our own time.

Happy Christmas,

David.

I seem to remember this one, MC. I liked it then; I like it now.

It is not only at Christmas but more so at New Year that the remembrance of friends and relations no longer with us must always be brought alongside.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Mr Newberry!
