Artificial Christmas Tree

My little fake tree –

it’s the only one for me!

No sticky needles, bugs, or ticks,

and still I get my Christmas kicks!

Only three feet tall –

from the basement I can haul!

Upon it are three strings of light

To make its cozy corner bright.

Yes, it’s oh so small

the cat will not upon it crawl.

She remembers last year when she tried,

down she fell with wounded pride!


Oh Christmas tree!


How greatly do I love thee!

  1. Nice poem, and I can definitely identify. We’ve gone from real tree to large artificial tree to small artificial tree to smaller artificial tree to just getting our 3-foot Father Christmas out (he has a string of clear lights) and calling that our Christmas décor. It works for us.
