A Holiday Poem

by Oakley Goodsell



As the holiday season comes around

The Christmas snow falls upon the ground

With gifts to buy you’ll want to shout

but that’s not what Christmas is about

It’s about the joy and love we give

To the people who around us live

Sometimes the meaning of Christmas is lost

forgotten outside and covered with frost

But as the holiday season starts

Christmas grows within our hearts

And as it grows we spread the word

The meaning of Christmas for it to be heard

And when Christmas comes we’re filled with joy

And I hope you remember that little boy

Who laid in a manger for all to see

That little boy who set us free
