bells, still intact.
Put away for next year.
Granma’s mom’s decorations once.
In the original box these bulbs now go.
As do the multicolored lights – rolled tight.
All the bows on bough rows are gathered up.
Sentimental pieces placed in the Christmas box.
Shimmery snow bulbs find their way there too.
An adorning star a-top is the last to go.
Tree lodged away for next year.
