"The Sight of Christmas"
by Sheila Corkery '22
Look there! At all the snow outside!
Watch as children's eyes grow wide
Ornaments hang delicately on all the trees
As people glide around on their skis
The plows start to move the slush out of the way,
As we, together, sit down to pray
We decorate the hall with boughs of holly
And everyone seems so very jolly
We sing carols as one with all the neighbors
And later we learn we’re not all professional ice skaters
The presents await under the tree
And children feel so much glee
Christmas seems so serene
But always keep in mind what this holiday truly means
