Welcome back to Joseph P. Martino, JerseySmarts.com’s resident poet! This time around, Mr. Martino brings us some verse on a sight that you truly have to experience to understand – Christmas in New York City. As someone who spent his early years in New York City and tries to get back there every few years during the Christmas season, I especially appreciate Mr. Martino’s poem! Enjoy!
It’s Christmas in New York City, come and experience
the sights, lights and sounds so pretty,
That comprises the rhythm,beat and excitement of our
great big and magnificent city.
It’s Christmas in New York City, now adorned in her Most glorious dress,
as church elders prepare the nativity scene and Baby Jesus crèche.
Christmas trees displayed all over town, now adorned and decorated in
Gaily colored lights,bells,reefs and tinsel that glows and twinkle in anticipation of Kris Kringle
Day and night…boy oh boy what a magnificent sight.
Christmas tree stands gleaming bright and tall in department stores, malls, front lawns, and homes.
Santa taking note of all the girls and boys list of christmas toys.
Saint Nick extends his warmest Christmas wishes to all who visit or call,
Merry, Merry Christmas to one and all… Here’s hoping, that on Christmas Day snow will fall.
Merry, Merry Christmas!
For, it’s Christmas in New York City.
Another gem, Mr. Martino. Thanks for your contributions and a Merry Christmas to you, too!
