The Heart Takes Wing

The heart takes flight at Christmastime

and somehow wends it way

through the snow and sleet and storms of life

to home of yesterday.

For there a certain charm surrounds

that home, wherever it be,

on mountain high, in valley how,

or by the shining sea

The heart takes wing at Christmastime

and finds it way back home

to memory-laden, pleasant rooms

where seeds of love are sown.

It’s true, the year is filled with cares

but naught can draw the line

to keep the heart from going home

Come joyful Christmastime.
