The First Christmas Tree

                                                                The



                                           First



                                    Christmas



    Tree…



Stripped of leaves – bare of branches

The Gift lay not under – but on that tree



The star



a cruel



crown



And



One



Light



hung



down



Red stripes dried

On that tree – the Gift died…

The First Gift given – for us, He Is Risen
