Here's a little, child-like poem for Advent. Enjoy!
I need Christmas trees and Christmas beads
to decorate my house and me;
gingerbread and sugar plums
and draughts of honey mead.
I need glitter made of gold dust,
sweet strings of ruby-fruits,
cider spiced with citrus peel,
and reindeer-fur-lined boots
for scattering about the floor
and looping on the stairs
and sipping with a flock of friends
and tramping through the stars.
I need labyrinths of ribbons
to tie up my many needs;
I need an angel for my treetop—
and a change of heart in me.
