Simple Things

Such simple things make Christmas:
A wreath outside the door,
A doll, a drum, friends who come
With their well-wishes,
A crib upon the mantle shelf,
A tree you cut yourself
In the woods lot,
Shiny apples from the bin,
Popcorn, cookies, childish din,
A heart where love may enter-in;
And candlelight that gleams across the snow,
A golden-bright reminder
Of that ageless Star of long ago!
