this snow


Before Christmas dawn
Heralding the new born King
Carolers from church

It’s Christmas morning
I know I have been naughty
Hope Santa is nice

Walking in the dark
While Singing Christmas carols
I hold my mom’s hand

As a child, at Christmas time, members of our church would go caroling all throughout the Christmas season. By this I mean standing out in the front of peoples homes, singing Christmas carols. It was usually at nights, the blackest of nights, it probably wasn’t but that was the perception. I was not fond of the dark, so I held fast to an adult hand. I made sure I did not get lost, left behind, or collected by the boogey man! I wonder is people still do that, a wandering band of carolers.
