An Evening Walk to Observe a Christmas Lights Display

Whose lights are these I do not know
That give to me a splendid show;
Their owner will not know I’m here
To see this festive Christmas cheer.

Alone outside I do not talk,
As I pause my evening walk
For bulbs that glow in colored ease
On roofline, windows, hedge, and trees.

A car approaches up the road
And slows to gaze at the abode,
But soon the engine hums away
And silence falls on the display.

I amble down the road to home –
With no more streets tonight to roam –
And wonder who the one might be
Who hung the lights for me to see.

  1. Once again Dusty, your site (or my browser) makes it difficult to comment. Which, in this case, follows: A wonderfully delightful work. Excellently crafted and speaking marvelously of a season most all of us revere with feelings evoked by this poem. Well done!
