A Christmas tree! A Christmas tree!

With dark green needled memories

Of childhood dreams and mysteries

Wrapped present-like in front of me.

A Christmas tree! A Christmas tree!

I glimpse a past wherein i see

The child that then grew into me

Not forward fast but haltingly.

A Christmas tree! A Christmas tree!

A time for being with family

A time that's gone so fleetingly

Yet lives for always deep in me.

A Christmas tree! A Christmas tree!

When twelfth night comes whole hauntingly

One lingered look and then i see

No Christmas tree where it would be.

A Christmas tree! A Christmas tree!

With feelings now felt longingly

No corner in my house to see

The magic of that Christmas tree.

A Christmas Tree! A Christmas Tree! by David Keig

We always have a room-height Frazier fir, but when I hear Christmas tree it is in my mind a red spruce with it's wider spaced branches, decorated with old ornaments, tinsel and real candles, the tree of my childhood.
