Christmas Greeting (Chritmas Poem by Cornish Poet Clive Blake) Phoetry – Visual Poetry – Concrete Poetry - Christmas Poetry - Poetry


Oh robin you so symbolize,
The spirit of Christmas cheer,
The chirpy way you bob about
At this festive time of year.

A Merry Christmas we exchange,
Our eyes through holly meeting,
Worth more to me than worldly-goods,
That warm unspoken greeting.

Clive, Thank you for the Christmas greeting and cheer! Here in New England the robin is a sign of spring "our ground is too frozen for them to pull worms, so they all head south for the winter" so our Christmas bird is the Cardinal with this bright flash of red flitting from twig to tree we know that Christmas is near. From my family to you and yours we wish a Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!!B^) Mik
