A fun poem ~ "December Treasures"
I thought I would get December Daily off to a good start for 2015 with a fun poem I found. As many readers know, I get out my stack of Country Woman issues from years past, every November or December and have fun enjoying their country goodness all over again. This year I found the poem "December Treasures" on the back cover of the the November/December 2000 issue. The poet is Sylvia Jasperson of Rice Lake, Wisconsin. Enjoy!
December Treasures Cookies and candy, Ribbons and bows, Warm woolen mittens, A cherry-red nose, Bright shiny tinsel And Christmas tree lights, A jingle of sleigh bells On cold snowy nights, A plump frosty snowman, A wreath on the door, The sweet sound of carols, And presents galore ... The sharp scent of pine Helps me remember Why of all of the months, I treasure December! ~ Sylvia Jasperson
Hope this little poem gets your December off to a merry start!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
