Decorating the Tannenbaum

Little white lights brighten the tree, as ornaments dangle from each branch.

Thoughtfulness goes into decorating, each treasure unwrapped and admired before hanging.

Some are decades old, filled of memories of childhood and long ago,

Others are newer, highlighting travels and favorite places.

Bells and snowflakes are a must. The jingling of the bells brings delight,

and the crystal and porcelain snowflakes, a collection through the years.

A touch of wildlife, birds, and deer when the theme is nature bound,

Shells, dolphins and turtles when the sea begins to call.

But every ornament is unique and special in its own way.

It’s a joy to put them up, bringing smiles all around.
