Winter Warmth December 24, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Poetry.

Listen to the wind
As it rushes to and fro
Snuggle ever closer to
The fire’s warming glow

Relaxed and reposed
Rocking back and forth
Warmed by burning logs
Glowing on the hearth

The Eve of Christmastide
Despite the dark of night
Surrounds us with Peace
Bathed in firelight

Be Merry.  Be Bright.

Filled with warmth, joy,
laughter, and light.

Thanks! We snapped it at Manatee Historic Village during the Cracker Christmas celebration two weeks ago.

Love it, it’s perfect and almost looks as if you were in some cold place, as opposed to sunny Florida 🙂

It’s been cooler than normal this year ~ my sweatshirt’s been a fairly constant companion.

And you got it just right, Nancy 🙂 beautiful. The light shines out of the post. Marry Christmas….I’m off to track Santa on NORAD…

Thanks, Kate!

I’m sure the kids will LOVE tracking Santa’s progress around the globe. 🙂

Beautiful poem, Nancy. Winter warmth… I knew it had to be by the fireplace. There is no warmth quite as inviting as that from a glowing fire in a hearth. Thank you for sharing. Blessings to you…

The best thing about winter . . . warming up before a crackling fire on the hearth.

Have a wonderful celebration tomorrow, Carol Ann.

Enjoy the day!
