Interior Christmas (With Snow Angel)


by Andrew J. Stone

The eagerness of children to

do what we are afraid to

 

cannot help but move us          Is

their willingness the motive

 

in us that makes us reject?          The

really important things, I mean

 

my son’s twentieth Christmas present,

the millionth light on the roof,

 

what do these things do to us?          We

come into the Season with colored canes

 

black-white, our garland stripped

and buried beneath the ice          And an

 

angel appears, simply because it is

unexpected of the things we know
