Tuesady Is Poem Day! Christmas Eve - by. Mathilde Blind


Alone--with one fair star for company,

The loveliest star among the hosts of night,

While the grey tide ebbs with the ebbing light--

I pace along the darkening wintry sea.

Now round the yule-log and the glittering tree

Twinkling with festive tapers, eyes as bright

Sparkle with Christmas joys and young delight,

As each one gathers to his family.

But I--a waif on earth where'er I roam--

Uprooted with life's bleeding hopes and fears

From that one heart that was my heart's sole home,

Feel the old pang pierce through the severing years,

And as I think upon the years to come

That fair star trembles through my falling tears.
