On branches of the Christmas tree,
A hopeful symbol — evergreen —
My preference is for ornaments
Which magnify precious moments:
Even the macaroni photo-frame
From kindergarten, not the same
As any other gift ever made.
Through the years its gold has stayed.
I tried really hard to find a photo of the ornament that I’m describing, but I must not have one. So, here is a stock photo of a decorated Christmas tree.
