christmas rhymes

Shining trees

And toppings of a star;

Family gatherings,

Sounds of hearty laughter;

Hanging mistletoes,

Colourful candles scented,

Plates of marshed potatoes

Stuffings in turkey roasted.


It’s the holiday season,

Filled with seasoning;

Let’s remember the reason

For all the rejoicing:

Long ago in a tiny manger,

Was born the Messiah,

Admist threats of danger,

To fulfill man’s greatest desire.


Yearning for the communion lost,

Thirsty for everlasting life,

Given to selfish desires and lust

Mankind wallow in evil and strife;

Through the Saviour’s birth-God’s gift

His life, love and death

And end was brought to the rift

Between God and man;He paid the eternal debt.


“Hosanna in the Highest”

The angels sing

Man’s songs will sound loudest;

To the highest heaven our praises ring

Peace on earth,

Goodwill to all,

Prosperity and mirth

Forever to all who heed His call.



Merry Christmas to all and sundry!

Wishing you a fun filled year ahead.

Your comments are always welcome.

Thanks for your support through the year.

  5. Lol @bunmiril…there is nothing like ‘head wordsmith’
    We are all learning and that ‘title’ is by virtue of how long you have stayed on NS and how active you are and not how good you are…
