A Season for Joy
By V. Rodney Harrison – 9-30-2010
In the frosty distance one can faintly hear,
The soft ring of harmonic bells.
Chiming and dancing ever so gingerly,
On stallions trotting through the swells.
Sleigh rides with snuggled lovers,
Drifting gracefully through a snow covered trail.
Warm mitten covered hands gently clasped,
As their adoring hearts begin to sail.
Light fluttering flakes fall from the night sky,
Mixed with shimmering stars from above.
Melting swiftly on the rosy cheeks,
Of those riding who are blissfully in love.
From the sleigh one may catch a glimpse,
Of children gliding over a frozen stream.
Joyfully laughing at one another,
As they race to be the winning team.
Or perhaps the site of an open fire,
Crackling in the wind with chestnuts alight.
Family and friends with steaming cocoa in hand,
