Trimming the Tree

Print Share
    I hang the strands of tinsel
    With care upon the tree,
    For there in each is captured
    A tender memory.
    The tiny elves, the reindeer,
    Each fragile ball or toy,
    The angel, and the star on top
    Recall a time of joy.
    Each time these happy moments
    Bring thoughts of those so dear;
    Each tree’s a shining jewel
    To treasure year by year.
