Ice Christmas Battle

I was lonesome in the world

Hearing music through the windows,

Listening the warm, quiet piano.

My hands were always cold

He started to dance and play with us.

On his face were tears, but sparkless;

Sparks became as wormy moat

As the Wooden Cross of Golgotha’s.

  1. I live in Ohio and I have seen the display for many years. It is exciting to read your post and recognize the photo. Your poem is also really good. Hugs, Barbara

  2. Thanks for letting me camp out in your blog for a little while today. I had a great time and tried to leave my campsite as good as when I arrived. I’ll be back!
