The Tree After Christmas
by
Randy Cadenhead


Next
 
A
cock-eyed
star points awry
Over popcorn strings
half-eaten by a calico kitten
Caught in rows of randomly lit bulbs
Hanging loosely on boughs of browning spruce
Raining needles upon empty boxes and torn wrapping
Paper strewn upon a chill winter floor
Where children lie playing
With a new
Kitten

This poem creates a wonderful word picture and its sentiment makes me nostalgic for childhood and the job of a new pet. Thank you!

This poem makes me wish I was still teaching sixth grade English --it would be fun to share it with my students.
