Analysis of Yuletide Happenings
Melita Catalina Warren 1949 (Kansas)
Christmas keeps heartbreak at bay
For little lambs who went astray.
Heartfelt notes with floral cachet,
Precious promises, ease dismay.
Bring home a Christmas tree, hay,
Then smell candle’s cranberry sachet.
Hear angel harpists happily play,
Decide to stay not go away.
Dwell in the spirit not carnal clay,
Emulate our Savior’s loving way.
This year be happy come what may,
Relax with cheerful greetings cards convey.
May angels surround you as you pray,
And peace reign in your heart this day.
