A Christmas Poem

Peace on Earth By: Sherri Lupton Hollister 2011


Silver tinsel shining bright
Carolers singing Silent Night
Bells clanging, pealing ring
Peace on Earth the Angels sing
Chaos, confusion , heartaches abound
There is no Peace on Earth to be found
I pray for a calm, quiet place
God whispers, “Child I give you grace.”
Wadded paper, twists of tape
Knotted ribbon, the hour late
So much to do no time to pause
Children touting Santa’s cause
Alas upon my bed I rest
I know in truth that I am blessed
For Peace on Earth at last I find
Quiet rest for a weary mind.

      1. No problem at all. Poetry is something I’ve wanted to get back into for a while and you’ve given me the push to restart!
