Decorations At Night

driving back North
after Thanksgiving

delightful decorations
on streetlights
through towns

lighted shape of an anchor
in the Port Washington harbor

Christmas lights
on a plow
in a field

home from the city
once again

  1. Hi Ellen. I love driving and seeing the lights as Christmas approaches. I like your poem, especially the ‘anchor’ and ‘harbor’. I remember a decorated crane which had a small Christmas tree held high at the end of the boom. Jane


  2. One of my favorite things about Christmas Eve, returning from the family gathering and seeing all of the decorations at night while listening to Christmas music. Wonderful verse, Ellen!
