Holiday Poems

Welcome to my collection of original “holiday poems,” free for non-commercial use only. I am pleased to make my poetry available to you, especially these holiday poems, which are gifts from my heart to anyone willing to accept them. In that spirit, may each poem about the holidays bring a bit of added meaning to someone’s Christmas or Easter, Valentine’s Day or Independence Day. Writing them has already brought added meaning to mine. (Please email a request for permission before using and include full copyright information on every copy.

Oh Come, Let Us Adore

©1997 Susan Noyes Anderson (poem only)


With joy and hope, we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
We speak of His example, of His love and sacrifice.
Our voices raise in carols praising Him, each sacred strain
a witness that the Lord did come and sank beneath our pain
to take our sins upon Himself, a perfect gift of love,
from our own Elder Brother, He who waits for us above.

A Fading Sky

Supermoon, Julio Cortez, 2013, AP

They came: the tired, the poor, the yearning masses,
the flood of people reaching for one moon––
sharing a dream that lived and died in snatches,
mercurial as air in a balloon––
