Christmas Stars

Stars in the winter sky,
Stars in the Christmas tree,
Stars in the Christmas lights
Twinkle joyously.
Stars on the paper wrappings,
Stars in the cookie dough,
Stars shaped for candles—
And stars in eyes that glow
With happy expectation
And joy that Christ’s own star
Still is a shining beacon
For glad hearts near and far.
