Without a Christmas tree © Gerald Jerry Patrick Wood 2012
Looking back on all those days and all those times of stuff and things
Didn’t really matter, did not really count, when all things considered,
Content to spend the day Without a Christmas tree.
A time of angelic heralds’ and starlit majestic splendor.
Of unheeded candor and murder by a king
of mourning in Ramah. A firstborn’s drama
All foreseen, yet unchanged considered results of an evil
Launched by Adam n Eve pointing a need for a coming redemptive king.
