A Christmas poem ~ "Christmas Splendor"
The poem I'm sharing came from the 1956 Ideals "Christmas Greetings". It's by Lida Shivers Leech.
Lida Shivers Leech
The dawn breaks o'er a beauteous scene,
Quiet, dazzling, and serene;
A wealth of diamonds in the snow
Set hill and vale aglow.
A panorama unsurpassed,
Traced by the Master-hand;
And etched in jewels crystal clear
By nature's magic wand.
A bright-eyed snowbird pecks around
For crumbs or berries red;
With cheery chirp he greets his mate
On icy branch o'erhead.
Christmas splendor-- a spotless robe
On roof, on shrub and tree;
We stand amazed and gaze in awe
On this, God's mystery.
This actually reminds me quite a bit of the type of poems my husband's dad would write. It does set a beautiful scene. God is indeed the Master Artist!
