awaiting

awaiting

lights sparkle
gracing the verdant boughs
upon each branch a fragile orb
or bauble

beneath the tree of the season
packages sit
the bows upon them reflecting
each shimmering bulb sabove

this winter’s night
the hearts of children
anticipate
the arrival of one who lives
only because they believe

brightly colored fabric skirts
soon covered in packages
wrapped in pretty papers
each waiting for the delighted cries
of children
