Christmas Shape poem

Christmas Tree






by my family,


out from hundreds

of other trees.

They brought me home and

placed me

where I could be admired.

They decked me

in gaudy jewels and on my arms


they draped fine gold vines and garlands.

An angel

sings from my topmost twig, fine songs

of a baby and its mother.

Wrapped boxes

shelter under

my trunk
