Christmas Poems for Blog, Card and PowerPoint

Section 1: Short Christmas Poems and Quotes

Christmas Hath A Darkness

Christmas hath a darkness;

Brighter than the blazing noon;

Christmas hath a chillness

Warmer than the heat of June,

Christmas hath a beauty

Lovelier than the world can show:

For Christmas bringeth Jesus,

Brought for us so low

By Christina Rosetti

The Nicest Present

Under the tree the gifts enthrall,

But the nicest present of them all

Is filling our thoughts with those who care,

Wanting our Christmas joy to share.

To you, whom we’re often thinking of,

We send our holiday joy and love.

By Joanna and Karl Fuchs

I Heard The Bells on Christmas Day

I heard the bells on Christmas Day

Their old familiar carols play,

And wild and sweet the words repeat

Of peace on Earth, good will to men!

By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

A Visit from St Nicholas

Twas the night before Christmas,

When all through the house

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there

By Clement C Moore

Christmas Is A Holiday For Friends

Christmas is a holiday for friends,

However they may be, or not, related.

Remember that the three wise kings were strangers

In search of one remote, uncanny dream.

So may we all be far more than we seem,

Together bound for dark and haunting changes,

More lovely for the loves we have created

Along the lonely paths from means to ends,

Stumbling towards that star of Bethlehem.

By Nicholas Gordon

Section 2: Longer Christmas Poems

Merry Christmas to the One I Love

Merry Christmas to the one I love,
Even on this day of love for all,

Remembering the love of one whose call

Redeemed all those whose hearts his love might move.

Yet only one love does my spirit prove,

Chosen in a passion like a squall,

Having in such ecstasy withal

Rejoiced in what we were created of.

In such love do we find our way outdoors,

So to be drawn to love of flesh and soul,

Traveling beyond our village green,

Moving towards the wash along our shores

As our love joins the greater love unseen,

Shining with dark passion on the whole.

By Nicholas Gordon

May This Christmas Be the First of Many

May this Christmas be the first of many,

Each more joyous in our growing love,

Revealing more of happiness than any

Riches might provide or pain remove.

Years flow like an unrepentant river,

Carrying the soil of life away,

Holding far more than they can deliver,

Rushing past the certitudes that stay.

In love there is an instance of forever

So shy and lovely it eludes the eye,

The sense of being home when we’re together,

More enduring than a reason why.

As love is born of passion, borne by will,

So may for many years we choose love still.


They gave each of us a number

All of my family were there

Our neighbors and our friends

All were crammed together

We walked until we stumbled

Then crawled into cold rough wagons

Elbow to elbow we traveled for miles

But at least we were together

Yeah we are going inside now

Just follow those in front and hurry

Hold onto your brother’s hand

We don’t want to be separated

Screams of pain and putrid smells

We merge on towards the unknown

Crowd crushing us before and behind

Nowhere else to go but together

Together we are going in

To the fire, to the heat

Of Auschwitz we will go

Silently as one people.

By Iris Deurmyer

Mary of Christmas

I know not how, dear Lady love,

To offer you my praise,

I cannot fashion as I wish

The words that I world raise.

You stand afar, celestial Queen,

The stars are in your crown,

They spangle at each gesture’s path

And dust upon your gown.

Perhaps I might recall the night

You knelt beside the crib,

The night when doors and casements shut

And left a mountain’s rib,

Alone, exposed, to hoard you close

Beside the new-born Child

And seek in Joseph’s kindly eyes

For something worldly-mild.

To counteract such mundane chill

I hereby set my heart,

Dim mirror of an Infant’s warmth,

Its flaming but a part,

A small, sad part of Endless Love

That came on Christmas day

To show a mother wonder-bright

To guide us on our way.

The Gift of God

There was seen a radiance

Glowing one night

Near the little maiden Mary

In blue and white.

Lilies are not fairer,

Roses more red,

Than the Child she sings to slumber,

An angel said.

So the shepherds ventured

Through the white cold,

And their eyes beheld the Infant,

An hour old.

Long they gazed and wondered,

Awkward in awe,

At the paramount perfection

Within their straw.

Diamonds are but trifles!

Rubies no gem!

Cried the hearts that slaved for pittance

Near Bethlehem.

So it was forever,

After the night

When the little maiden Mary

Wore blue and white.

The Christmas Silence

Here in the cloister they who seek discover

A wandered fragment of the Christmas silence

That hid itself from the disquieted earth:

The silence of the Virgin bending over

The little Uncreated Innocence

Upon the bed of a most hidden birth,

The silence that was Joseph’s sacrament

Through years that were a threshold to this hour

And which was seed and stem to the white flower

That blossomed on his rod,

The speechlessness of the unlettered shepherds

Who stood amazed before the Lamb of God.

The angels sang at Christmas, but their music

Was like a stillness to the inner ear,

And soft as petals from a shaken bough.

They who go walking in the Christmas silence

Through any season of the changing year

Come to a Man with peace upon his brow

And see the Mother and the Infant near.

This house, as once the Saint of Alcantara

Said of Teresa’s, is the little hospice

Of Bethlehem.

Cloister or cave- its solitudes shall be

The dwelling of a human trinity

And they who enter learn a wordless language

And the Divine Untold addresses them.
