The Christmas Poems


Our tradition began in 1992: My wife selects, from among poems I have written during the year, the one she considers most appropriate to send to friends and relatives with our holiday greetings.  Sometimes the poems are personal or family-oriented, but often they deal with social or historic events of the year in question.
