Waiting for a Window

little tree
little silent Christmas tree
you are so little
you are more like a flower

who found you in the green forest
and were you very sorry to come away?
see i will comfort you
because you smell so sweetly

i will kiss your cool bark
and hug you safe and tight
just as your mother would,
only don't be afraid

look the spangles
that sleep all the year in a dark box
dreaming of being taken out and allowed to shine,
the balls the chains red and gold the fluffy threads,

put up your little arms
and i'll give them all to you to hold
every finger shall have its ring
and there won't a single place dark or unhappy

then when you're quite dressed
you'll stand in the window for everyone to see
and how they'll stare!
oh but you'll be very proud

and my little sister and i will take hands
and looking up at our beautiful tree
we'll dance and sing
"Noel Noel"

~Little Tree - e e cummings

This is a masterpiece, John. Is it all right if I use my crayons to decorate the tree. (I will print it up first, though.) LOL.

John, your creation alone is very poetic in nature, but paired with E. E. Cummings, it is even more so! Lovely and imaginative!

I can see it is headed for a warm house to spend the winter Shads, but sadly it will be its last. It will be given a lot of love and dressed to be viewed.
I really like the editing. I wish I knew how you did that? Maybe it will be on the Discovery Channel. :)

† Merry Christmas †

Love it, faved it. Great image here... almost seems to be crafted of a silky fabric, like a parachute. Nice job of pushing the "envelope" of holiday imagery.

Please, even if you don't visit my gallery, check out my "Faves".I've left them intact since day "1", and would like it if every image there got the attention they deserved.
