Naked trees shiver
in frigid temperature,
await spring attire.



Freezing winter wind
howls against my windowpane,
crackling fire fights back.



Snow covers housetop
while icicles hang from eaves,
I get out Mom's quilts.



Hungry homeless man
sits on park bench in the snow....
Christmas means giving.

Copyright 1995 Ruth Gillis



Weary young soldier
fighting far away from home...
sad Christmas this year.



Mom baking cookies
to send to son overseas...
a tear falls in dough.
