How lovely are the sentiments
Contained in Christmas cards,
As well as dear ,heartwarming scenes
Of snowy trees and yards.
They never change so very much ,
But who would want it so ?
For Christmas seems to just belong
To cedar trees and snow.
The greetings on a Christmas card
Are precious as a gem,
Because old neighbors and old friends
Send us their love with them
Warming our hearts with loving words,
Making us know that they
Are thinking of dear bygone times,
Upon this Christmas day.
A holly wreath, a little church,
A lovely lighted door,
Some carol singers in the street,
The windows of a store.
All these are part of Christmastime,
Like cake and mistletoe,
Because a card arrived today
And sort of told me so.
Until we meet again
