That's funny, our kids have been watching old Superfriends cartoons lately (I hear,'Wonder Twin powers, ACTIVATE!,' all the time. :wink: ). You know your superheroes...

November Snow

By CK



I woke up this morning to a wonderful surprise

White flakes from the sky accompanied the sunrise;



I thought for a moment, a dream this must be,

For on November 18, its not snow you often see;



White branches, white bushes, white stones and lawns,

I'm heading outside when I shake off this yawn;



As I touched the first flake, I could tell right away,

This was packing snow, great fun was on the way;



We started with small balls, rolled all over the ground,

And before we knew it we had quite an impressive mound;



This mound began to take shape, a strong round base,

It wouldn't be long before we sculpted the face;



Acorns for eyes, nose and mouth made of rocks,

Twigs for two arms and for mittens, old socks;



As we completed our task, we gave ourselves one big cheer;

For November could claim credit for the first snow of the year.

Excellent, CK!! :D You need to save this one for your kids to go back and read one day!



***Let me modify this and say that of course I hope you're saving them all for your kids to go back and read one day. 8) *****

Very nice CK and Jack Frost who doesn't like Superhero's? .... I really want to contribute something but whenever I sit down to try ...I end up looking at a blank screen with snowflakes just falling. I have tried at least 3 times. Something just feels wrong.

Ah, yes, Jack, the commercialism that Christmas has become. Very important to keep in mind.



"There are a lot of bad isms in this world, but one of the worst is commercialism."

Again, if too preachy, please disregard.

Threaded by all the people you see

Jack, I didn't think it was too preachy at all. Thought it was quite nice actually.

Watching the tree

shimmer and glow

a wonder of Christmas

its elegant show



twinkles and sparkles

I'm filled with delight

warm wash of colors

a truly serene sight



Ornaments from ages

that have come and past

ornaments glistening

a cherished collection Ive amased



Tinsel slightly swaying

to a seemingly yule tide beat

I cant wait to see what it

looks like from the street



Finally topped by an Angel

that I hold most dear

I think of all who I have lost

Remembering them brings forth a tear



This beautiful symbol

our Christmas Tree

let it's memories guide us

and our true spirit you will always see

Jack and Santa Baby, those were both very warm poems, I really appreciated the sentiments in each of them. :D



Glad to see you back on here, Santa Baby. :D



I hope to see another great masterpiece or two from all of you poets today, y'all are spoiling me already. 8)

I didn't know where else to put this. It's a Christmas song.... kinda, but I didn't want to put it in the 'Sing Christmas Songs' thread, cause I'm not suer how many people know it. The lyrics are what really make this piece anyway, The earilest veersion I could find of it is by a guy by the name of Jim Ed Brown. I can only assume he wrote it. Jim Reeves, Willie Nelson, Bobby Gentry and even Sinead O'Connor have all done their over versions of this great little piece.



Scarlet Ribbons



I peeped in to say good night

When I heard my child in prayer

"Send me, God, some scarlet ribbons

Scarlet ribbons for my hair"



All the stores were closed and shuttered

All the streets were dark and bare

In my town no scarlet ribbons

Not one ribbon for her hair



Through the night my heart was aching

Just before the dawn was breaking

I peeped in and on her bed

In gay profusion lying there

I saw a ribbon, scarlet ribbons

Scarlet ribbons for her hair



If I live to be a hundred

I will never know from where

Came those lovely scarlet ribbons

Scarlet ribbons for her hair
