Oh, Christmas Tree... (Concrete) (HM)

A
Fairy
blesses
this Wee
Fir-tree, aloft
she sits on high;
she retells when this
@"@"@"@"@"@"@
little evergreen
stood and knew not why.
All the other trees were chosen,
leaving just him, in the forest, all alone;
at night she'd hear him wishing, hoping that he would grow.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
The fairy knew the answer,
she sprinkled magic in the spring,
come summertime, reflecting sunrays
to swell the swallows on the wing; then just when
Autumn came a calling, she used a spot of sparkling love,
gifting growth to a trunk come winter, towards the snowing clouds above.
#~@~#~@~#~@~#~@~#~@~#~@~#~@~#~@#~@~#~@~#~@
Now come all
ye faithful,
see the tallest
tree so fair,
proudly stood,
Looking over, the Christmas shoppers in Time Square.

    Thank you, Kasie. Despite this site's limitations, it's amazing what can be squeezed out of it. I am really looking forward to the changes that Janis is working on. :D

    Very beautiful, I love the layout and creativity it's stunning. I don't think I have ever seen such an appealing piece. It is both pleasing to read and view. I'm Speachless. Well done

      Thank you, Sir. It did make the ole grey matter work hard; but I think worth it. It really is best viewed on a larger screen. On my smart phone, it looks odd!

      Thanks, again.
