Christmas Poem

Tangerines by Gayle MadisonOne hundred years ago
Tangerines and sugar plums
Came north at Christmas only
Rumbling up in laden trucks
Like Santa's citrus sleighs
The harbingers of visions
And delicious dancing dreams
Came rolling out of knitted socks
Onto the parlor floor while
Tousled heads exclaimed with glee
Their gleaming juicy glory
And there on Christmas morning
Lay God's surprising orange love!
