Short Christmas Poems



I hope you enjoy this eclectic collection of short Christmas poems; some cute, some romantic, some religious, some traditional. It's all up to you.

Merry Christmas!



A Chubby Snowman

A chubby little snowman
had a carrot nose.
Along came a bunny,
and what do you suppose?

That hungry little bunny,
looking for some lunch,
Grabbed that snowman's nose,
Nibble, nibble, crunch!

A Dozen Christmas Roses


1 Dozen Long Stem Red Roses with Bear and Godiva - VASE INCLUDED - FedEx - $59.90

from: Flowers Fast.com-Send Flowers Same Day Delivery

One rose for the times we've shared and the memories we've made.
One rose for being someone I can trust.
One rose for accepting me as I am.
One rose for forgiving me the mistakes I've made.
One rose for taking the time to listen even when you don't understand or agree.
One rose for being there when I need you.
One rose for letting me be there when you need someone.
One rose for the hopes and dreams and feelings you share.
One rose for your actions that speak louder than words.
One rose for knowing when to speak and when to offer silence.
One rose for your smile that brings joy into my world.
And one rose for being one of life's most beautiful gifts.
Twelve roses because you are important to me and I love you.

Candy Cane

A significant symbol of Christmas
Is the Simple Candy Cane.
It's shape is the crook of the Shepherd
One of the first who came.

The lively peppermint flavor is
The regal gift of spice.
The White is Jesus' purity.
The Red is sacrifice.
The narrow stripes are friendship.
And the nearness of his love.
Eternal, Sweet Compassion
A gift from God above.

The Candy Cane reminds us all
of how much God cared.
And like His Christmas gift to use
It's meant to be broken and shared.

Christ is in Christmas

I Remember in December
That the reason for the season
Is that Christ is in Christmas
And he is there for all of us
And I remember the son God gave
To the world he would save
When love was born
On that first Christmas morn.

To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect.

Christmas Lights

Bright Christmas stars shine on high,
Golden stars in the wint'ry sky;
Christmas candles in windows bright
Sends greeting into the night;
While in our hearts the Christmas flame,
Glows with a love like his who came,
The infant Christ of lowly birth,
To bring good will and peace to earth.

Let Everyday be Christmas

Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself.

~ Norman W. Brooks

Let's Kiss for Christmas

Let’s Kiss For Christmas,
For our love is strong,
Let’s Kiss For Christmas,
Together is where we belong,
With passion so much brighter,
Than any sparkling light,
We’ve waited so long,
And prayed for this night,
Let’s Kiss For Christmas,
Let’s Kiss For Christmas!

~ Trade Martin

Love Came Down

Love came down at Christmas;
Love all lovely, love divine;
Love was born at Christmas,
Stars and angels gave the sign.

~ Christina G. Rossetti

May Your Christmas Tree...

May your Christmas tree be filled with stocking-full gifts,
May your days be filled with people who gift you an instant lift.
May your kitchen be filled with mountains to delicacies,
May your holidays be flooded with happiness and ecstasies.
Have a lovely Christmas!

My Friends, My Angel

I believe in angels
Those helpers who are near
Exactly when they're needed most,
Then seem to disappear.
I know them when I see them
Whatever their disguise
They're patient and encouraging
Resourceful, kind, and wise

Yes, I believe in angels
The kind that heaven sends
And I'm surrounded every day
By angels I call friends.
God gave me someone special
When He gave me
A special friend like you
Have a Blessed Christmas!

Peace on Earth

Peace on earth will come to stay,
When we live Christmas every day.

Santa Claus

When I was a child
I believed in Santa Claus

When I got older
I didn’t believe in Santa Claus

When I became a parent
I was Santa Claus

Now I have grandchildren
I look like Santa Claus

Snowball

I made myself a snowball,
As perfect as could be,
I thought I'd keep it as a pet,
And let it sleep with me.
I made it some pajamas,
And a pillow for its head,
Then last night it ran away,
But first - it wet the bed!

~ Shel Silverstein

The Grinch Excerpt

And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow,
Stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so?
It came without ribbons. It came without tags.
It came without packages, boxes or bags.
And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before.
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store?
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?

~ Dr. Seuss

There's More to Christmas

There's more, much more to Christmas
Than just candle-lights and cheer;
It's the spirit of sweet friendship
That brightens all the years;
It is thoughtfulness and kindness,
It is hope that is reborn again,
For peace, for understanding
And for goodwill to humans!

What Can I Give Him

What can I give Him,
Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd,
I would bring Him a lamb.
If I were a Wise Man,
I would do my part.
Yet what can I give Him?
I give Him my heart.

~ Christina G. Rossetti
