I am new enough here to not have gotten around to uploading any songs. I plan to do so in the near future. Meanwhile I wish to greet you all with.a Christmas greeting in the form of a free verse poem I wrote. Hope the message blesses you

THE TREE OF PERFECT CHOOSING
By Christa Selah

How frantically we search
in wake of the season
for a tree to adorn
with regal splendor
One full branched and stately
with no choppy spaces
with the fragrance of a forest
of fresh wood pine

We scamper up and down the
lots and nurseries
attune to the want
of our eye’s lust
No less in grace and grandeur
than an emerald
Our choice must be outstanding
Fit. yes. for a kingly coronation
all the handsome treasures of
a crowning

The aspirant must merit fancy trimming
the ornaments and all the gifts arriving
It’s top must be deserving of an angel
or a star flashing the light of Christmas promise
Unlike our lovely decked out tree before us
too soon to be all brown and dry and brittle
Yet thank heaven the tree of life’s within reach
the evergreen whose beauty will not perish
The tree of life is God, the Son, Christ Jesus
the perfect one designed for our heart’s
choosing.
