Christmas Love - a Poem

First published in Christmas

Christmas Love

Snow replaces grass and stone

A time we seldom feel alone

The Bolton Christmas falls tonight

To set our eager souls alight

I see your light, your tender stare

Your outstretched arms and skin so fair

This town looks good beneath the sky

Reflected in your gazing eye

Smiles replace the mid-year frown

As we see the saviour’s crown

Snowy flakes swoon, they fly!

Promise you'll never say goodbye

Watches tick the years away

Why this love for just one day?

Thank your northern star above

Preserve the Bolton Christmas love
