Six ways of looking at the Moon…
Moon you are like a clown’s face at a birthday party, always cheering me up and making life fun,
Wake up moon! Don’t fall asleep because we need your night light,
Moon, how can you be so brave, guarding our planet night after night alone and cold with the stars wrapped in your blanket?
I know your only wish, moon, is to have a brother that you could share your secrets with on dark nights when the sun turns its back on you,
Moon you can heal the world with your soft light,
Keep laughing moon and wink at me at night… keep me cheerful and alive.

    Six Ways of Looking at an Angel

    Angel, you are like an eagle, with curved wings flapping about.

    Fight for the little baby Jesus against evil.

    How do you fly, Angel, when you don’t have hollow bones?

    I know your only wish: it is to get rid of all the baddies and make the world good again.

    Angels can’t lie because they’re full of truth.

    The angel’s sword can dance in the air as it swings across to strike its enemy.

    SNOW
    White snow you are as soft as a velvet cushion,
    Don’t hide away when December and January have left,
    Snow, do you have to feel so cold on my small fingers and tiny toes?
    I know your only wish, snow, is to play with as many children and adults as possible,
    Snow, you are a white carpet to walk upon,
    Cold snow, you quietly lie on the hard, stone floor.

    Six Ways To Look At A Christmas Tree
    Christmas tree, you’re as bright as a star shining in the middle of the sky,
    Don’t hide away Christmas tree, we need you in December to bring us joy,
    Do you feel lonely in the attic with no one to play with and nothing to do?
    I know your only wish tree is to have someone to watch you at night,
    Christmas tree you can last for ever,
    Christmas tree you stand tall in the middle of the room.
