Share your Christmas poems

WE WERE sent in a poem about Christmas and it got us thinking, we'd like to read more! Read the submitted poem and then write one to share with us. 

There's a reason for the season 

There's a reason for the season and it's not in Santa Claus.

Nor in gifts through Him delivered getting girls & boys applause.

It's a Baby who is the reason, sent to earth long years ago.

Gift of Love from God His Father, to a world that He loved so.

There's a reason for the season, and it's not in mistletoe.

Nor fir trees bedecked with baubles, setting children's eyes aglow.

It's why shepherds from the hillside, and wise men from afar.

Came as one in adoration to the Babe led by a star.

There's a reason for the reason, and it's not in turkey roast,

Nor plum pudding with white dressing. Neither drinks raised to a toast. It's in the angels in the Heavens, who did sing at that Babe's birth.

Glory to God in the Highest, with Goodwill and Peace on Earth.

By Richard Mills
