When the Christmas Tree is Gone

An after-Christmas poem by Chris

No more jingle jangle
No more twinkling lights
Where’re the candy canes
and the angels all in flight?

No more tinsel tangle
No more reindeer on the lawn
All that’s left are dried up needles
When the Christmas tree is gone

No more strings of popcorn
No more presents tied with bows
Where are the Christmas carols
and the longing looks for snow?

No more butterflies in stomachs
No more anxiousness for dawn
All that’s left are dried up needles
When the Christmas tree is gone

There is melancholy sadness
and the fun has been withdrawn
I’m just left with dried up needles
When the Christmas tree is gone

But look, there’s a manger
with a Baby in the hay
And some small ceramic people
Facing where the Baby lay

The scene is still remaining
After all was put away
‘Tis a great reminder
of the Hope that’s here to stay

No matter what the time of year
Or trials you come upon
The Hope of Jesus birth remains
When the Christmas tree is gone

    What a great poem, Chris! Our stuff is put up and it’s always sad to do that. We do keep up our Nativity for the season though. It is because of His birth, we celebrate 🙂
