broken-xmas-ornamentOne melancholy sight to see:
a brittle, barren Christmas tree.

The lights that twinkled are no more,
pine needles lie upon the floor,

the beads and balls have all come down,
and every branch droops to a frown.

Removed, it leaves an empty space,
but hope steps in and holds a place…

a lingering whiff of forest air,
a memory for all to share,

a sense of loved ones gathered there.
