Christmas Tree

Christmas Tree Ditty

Oh Christmas tree you were so very small

My Southend neighbour gave you to me

I set you outside by my hall

With twinkly lights

And a little star

You looked so cute

Sitting there in the cold

For all the hoypaloy to behold

Then when Christmas time was over

No I didn’t put you in the bin!

You see

Little Christmas tree

You life had just begun

I took you in to nuture

A bigger tree to be for the future

I found a bigger pot

And a nice sunny spot

In my garden here in Shrew

And watered you

And watched you grow

So a tree for Christmas this year you can be

Doubled in size for all too see

You may not be the biggest one

But for Christmas you will bring some fun

I’ll get some mini baubles and a star

And you will be the best Christmas Tree by far

I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at
