Christmas Lantern

Nativity

Christmas at Home

Quaint miniature ornaments
Touched by hands manifold
Hung up, taken away, appraised
A lifetime collection frugal craft

Assigned with a single task:
Adornments of firs, spruces
Shedding needles at homesteads
As their unforgettable scent spreads

Wax models, straw and fabric stars,
Tiny glass domes with cork pagodas
Wood cuts, baublettes, crochet snowflakes,
 Olive tree carvings of nativity

Feathered breakable birds and hearts
A gathering close to crib and manger
A vista for smiling and receptive souls
