It Is Christmas

It is Christmas in the mansion,
Yule-log fires and silkin frocks.
It is Christmas in the cottage,
Mother filling little socks.
It is Christmas in the highway,
In the thronging, busy mart.
But the dearest, truest Christmas
Is the Christmas in the heart.

It is a wonderful written piece. The wreath hanging on the old gates is beautiful. We don't have snow on the ground anymore but maybe tomorrow we will have some again.
