A Christmas Tale ❄️

The true Christmas spirit is putting others’ happiness before our own, and finding you’ve never known such happiness.
Toni Sorenson

The silver glow of Christmas twilight,
Saw the child staggering home,
Into the dark, frosty woods.

Fingers frozen, in she went
To see her brother weeping.
“Santa’s forgotten us”, the little one cried .

Twas a Christmas day
When love discovered its path,
Anchored in hearts, it blossomed into
A home for all

Cold, dark and scared,
Wrapping him in her cloak,
She cradled him till the sobbing ceased.

Mother arrived at the twelfth stroke,
With unsold quilts,
And held the frozen ones close.

Her tender love
Warmed their chilled souls.
With grateful hearts,
In wonderland dreams were they lost.

For lack of temporal presents,
They’d been given a celestial mother
A blazing star in their skies .

Mother’s love is infinite.
A child can’t outgrow it and a mother can’t conceal it.”
― Michael Bassey Johnson, The Book of Maxims, Poems and Anecdotes

I wrote this poem for the Winter Writing Workshop hosted by Reese @ Blogging with Reese! The prompt was to write a winter poem in less than 125 words. It was inspired by Coco Cola’s 2020 commercial. Watch it below! It’s a lovely commercial!

Thank you so much for reading!

  3. Guten Tag.

    Ich kann den anderen ihr Glück nicht wissen
    wenn jemand mich fragt
    ob ich ihn ein Stück des Weges begleiten will
    damit sie / oder er
    auf seinem Weg ein Gleichgewicht
    in Ihrer/seiner Seele zu finden hofft

    Antwort an: –Toni Sorenson

    Die Mutter gibt dem Kind die Wärme
    den eigenen Lebensweg zu suchen
    und vielleicht auch
    dass es ihn als Erwachsener zu finden wagt

    Good day.

    I cannot know other people’s happiness
    if someone asks me
    whether I want to accompany him part of the way
    so that she / or he
    a balance on its way
    hopes to find in his / her soul

    The mother gives the child the warmth
    to seek one’s own path in life
    and maybe also
    that dares to find him as an adult
