The Garden Christmas Tree

All dressed up, and nowhere to go
a tall high fern sits gathering the snow
collecting white stuff from branch to root
as flakes cover all things that are under foot

He’s had a haircut since last year
when he gave children some Christmas cheer
Birds are away, having flown west
So up in the tree he’s having a guest

A squirrel up high – is sleeping round snow
and under the leaves – a mouse is a go
collecting some goodies before he’s asleep
in his winter house a few twigs depth deep

And lights around tree – do cheer and inspire
those wassailers visiting houses in Christmas choirs
but best thing of all – the thing all enjoy
is the smile for the tree from the young girls and boys
