The colors of Christmas,
So bright every year,
Always bring with them
Good holiday cheer:
The red of the berries,
The green of the trees,
The silvery bells
Ringing out on the breeze.
And over it all
There’s the white of the snow.
Just look at the lamplight’s
Bright golden glow.
The frost on the window
Sparkles in greys,
Giving the world
An ice-slippery glaze.
The sunrise is pink
On a new Christmas Day,
And lavender moonlight
Shines on the red sleigh.
