Christmas on Main Street
by V. Rodney Harrison Jr. – 10-14-2010
As the snow silently drifts down on each passerby,
A brisk wind flows down the snow covered walkways with ease.
Folks all about with merriment in their warmed hearts,
From the blinking lights hung high and the tinsel covered trees.
Five and Dime windows are full of jovial decorative displays,
With themes of St. Nicholas and his Significant Other.
Of board games and toys for children of every age,
As well as festive grand gifts for both - father and mother.
Shoppers follow in line with their newly found treasures,
Wrapped packages snug and stacked tall in their arms.
Brightly colored bows with fresh cut ribbon flowing free,
Adorn their thoughtful gifts, so full of precious charms.
Laughter fills the streets from children gliding by,
Over ice covered cobblestone of snow-cleared lanes.
Men dressed up as St Nick on corners ringing bells,
Merrily handing out to every child - scrumptious candy canes.
Quaint carriages being drawn by towering Clydesdales,
Lovers wrapped in an embrace of warm hearted love.
Holding hands and sneaking kisses as they wonder at the sites,
As perfect snowflakes continue to fall from above.
No matter where you stroll nor who it is you are talking to,
A smile and a Merry Christmas! - greets you from all around.
For it is the time of year of abundant peace on Earth,
And good will to all men, from our Savior most profound.
