Christmas Miracle



Once upon a Christmas night
The countryside, all soft and white
Barren fields, awash in light
From a star above, so very bright
*
All the animals gathered round
For in the woods, many critters abound
A tiny kitten lies on the ground
Weary from his travels, found
*
A path to a cottage on the hill
Following the sparrows trill
A dish of food upon the sill
As happily, he ate his fill
*
Then the door opened wide
And much to his wondrous surprise
"Welcome," said the ones inside
"Yes, the animals were your guide"
*

"Climb upon the windowsill
Look upon the distant hill
Outside in the snow, so still
The animals all wish you well"
*
"There is a bed, by the Christmas tree
From hunger and cold, you now are free
We know, you surely will agree
Our furrever kitten, you will be "

Oh, what a beautiful poem. It definitely brought tears to my eyes. And I love the pictures, especially the one at the top. It just looks like a perfect picture for Christmas. The innocence and wonder of all animals.

AWWWW...that's so sweet! If it wasn't for the open door policy of most of our humans, we wouldn't be here.
