Christmas written by Ann Christine Tabaka at



written by: Ann Christine Tabaka


The tree is up
The cards are sent
Snowflakes cut out 
And hung as meant

The star is atop
The Christmas tree
A time of joy
For you and me

The gifts all wrapped
The baking done
Now is the time 
To have some fun

Excited Children
Gather round 
To listen to
The joyous sound

Songs of praise
The carolers sing
In honor of
The new born king

No matter what
You might believe
There is love to give
And to receive
