Christmas Sonnet By: Tami Hetrick


Christmas brings an abundance of joy

It causes anticipation in children’s hearts

For each child is sure to get a new toy

Some children get so much they become tarts

Decorations color the deadness of winter’s season

Music rings in the ears of all the people

Life’s many attributes suddenly have reason

As everyone comes to worship under the steeple

Christmas causes people to give an extra care

They slow their lives to enjoy life’s abundant plan

The season makes people do things they normally wouldn’t dare

People reach out to help an extra helping hand to their fellow man

Traditions are handed down some are started anew

As silver, gold, red, and green show their wonderful hue.
