Christmas Lights
By Bill Webb

Lights sparkle in your eyes
the tree adorned
children gently snore.
It is then I understand
the beauty of unwrapping.

    Hey there,

    I really like this piece, Bill. I’m a big fan of your beat on the second and third lines. It adds a very uplifting tone to the poem and gives it a bit more joy when it comes to reading.

    The truth is that I admire the vague, but (to me) implied story of it. I can think of a hundred different things this could mean but they all still fluctuate around one idea. A fantastic thing for me when it comes to poetry.

    With much respect,
    Tristan.
