Welcome Christmas
by Cynthia Sheridan

Garland tied with festive bow
Crimson candles in a row
O Holy Night of long ago
The holidays are here

Frozen breath in crisp night air
Blackened branches, cold and bare
Sandhill cranes their trumpets blare 
Glad tidings, loud and clear

Fir trees trimmed and stockings hung
‘Welcome Christmas, everyone
The day to gather round has come
With those we hold most dear

Soon the midnight bells will chime
How quickly turn the hands of time
Let us lift a glass to auld lang syne
And the happiest new year!
