As referenced in my Peppermint post, my grandfather wrote a couple of poems that were Catholic influenced. He was about 19 years old when he wrote this. It is the appropriate season to share this one with you.
Written by my Papa, probably Christmas 1929
Christmas season is here again
To remind us once more;
Of God’s gift to man
His son to die so we may die no more.
Each one should remember him
As to you Christmas brings joy;
Because He is a precious gem,
And should be your joy more than toys.
Don’t forget your friends in need
Help them all you can;
For who can do a better deed
Than help his fellow man?
Christ teaches us to love
And help a needy brother;
For our reward is from above
Pray for us blessed Virgin Mother.
