  1. Trimming The Tree
    Poet: Wilma Willett Fuchs

    Again we trim the Christmas tree
    And gaily deck each bough
    A loving task of many years
    As it was then, 'tis now.

    We set the tree in holder firm,
    Nxt fasten each small light,
    And then upon the topmost point
    We place the star of white.

    We drape the tree with ropes of gold
    And strands of shining silver,
    And then upon each branch we hang
    Ornaments that shimmer.

    When the task is done we reminisce,
    About the trees of the past.
    We loved each one, yet vow this one
    Is nicer than the last.

    And as we gather round the tree,
    Remembering other years,
    There is a glisten in our eyes,
    Perhaps from joy, from tears.

    And while reflections of the past
    Set every tree apart,
    'Tis the same old Christmas spirit
    Reflected in each heart.

  3. Christmas Tree
    Poet: Sudie Stuart Hager

    Nature, this Christmastide, has decked a tree.
    It stands upon a hill, lit by the sun.
    Its tinseled beads and strands shine brilliantly;
    Its crystal ornaments are gloriously spun.

    Its emerald needles will not droop and fade;
    They will not lose their fragrance and be shed;
    This tree will furnish spring and summer shade,
    And rain-filled clouds will rest upon its head.
    Trees, decked by man, adorn town windows; still
    The season's loveliest tree stands on the hill.



  4. Christmas Is
    Poet; Elsie Natalie Brady

    Christmas is a green pine tree
    With fragrant needles, festively
    Trimmed with ornament and gift
    On each December twenty-fifth.



  5. Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall. Larry Wilde

  6. Presents Under The Tree
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    The children's eyes are so bright
    As we turn on the Christmas tree lights
    They are so full of excitement and joy
    They can't wait for the arrival of Santa and toys.

    They put the decorations on the tree
    Laughing and full of glee
    But want they really want to see
    Is presents under that Christmas tree.

    Written in the 1800s, the original song is attributed to August Zarnack of Germany. It has been said that Ernst Gebhard Anschutz adapted the original song into a Christmas song and added the 2 and 3rd verses.

    O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
    How lovely are your branches!
    O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
    How lovely are your branches!
    Not only green in summer’s heat,
    But also winter’s snow and sleet.
    O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
    How lovely are your branches!

    O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
    Of all the trees most lovely;
    O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
    Of all the trees most lovely.
    Each year you bring to us delight
    With brightly shining Christmas light!
    O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
    Of all the trees most lovely.

    O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
    We learn from all your beauty;
    O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
    We learn from all your beauty.
    Your bright green leaves with festive
    Give hope and strength throughout the year.
    O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
    We learn from all your beauty.

  10. Gather Round
    Poet: Benjamin W. R. Tayler

    Gather we 'round the Christmas-tree,
    Sing hey, sing ho, for the Christmas-tree!
    For its boughs are full, as we all may see.
    With beautiful gifts for you and me.
    Sing ho for the Christmas-tree!
    A gun for Jack and a doll for Prue,
    A knife for Ned and a sled for Sue,
    And sweets for all of us, me and you.
    And something for father and mother, too.
    the joys which come from a Christmas true!
    Sing hey, for the Christmas-tree!

    Gather we 'roimd the Altar of God,
    O sing, O kneel at the Altar of God!
    For here we keep the Christmas tryst
    With Christ at the Holy Eucharist,
    O sing at the Altar of God!
    For decked is His Temple with garlands rare.
    And rich is His Altar with lilies fair;
    O come in the Christ-Child's Name and share
    In His Love with which no love can compare.
    For the Christmas is poor if the Christ be not there,
    O kneel at the Altar of God!

  12. Memories of Years Past
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Each year we buy an ornament for the tree
    One that has memories of the past year.
    Our Christmas tree is like a storybook
    It brings back past years as we look.
    Each year unwrapping the trimmings for the tree
    Memories we talk about with glee.
