A Little Christmas Tree, 2010

I knew it would not go over big, my purchase of this little tree,

So slight a mere five feet.

A third the ornaments once adorned,

Only a chosen few displayed.

Selected treasured photo shots:

A few first Christmas’ past

Plus the ‘freshy’ baby pout,

Years vainly hidden from the rest,

Decided unanimously on sibling vote,

Is now the princess upon the top?

A singular sand dollar sparkling and ornate

A treasure from Aunt Susan made in 1993.

The last of the set of six remain selected

to decorate our tree.

Glass ornaments, with sentiments of

mother’s love,

Clothespin angles made by grandma,

Who is no longer here, yet, still very much with us,

Comes to life once more upon our Christmas tree.

Cross-stitched hearts once crafted by my girls, and me.

Sticky candy canes, last years, yes?

A little house and a wooden car all


A downsized Christmas as must be,

With memories abound.

What more could I ask of Thee

Than loving children to share with me

Such a marvelous, little, Christmas tree.

    I like your Christmas tree. It’s not the size, but the memories that count – in that respect, you’ve got a very large tree! The hand-made ornaments are always the best. Thanks for sharing the pictures 🙂
