A Christmas Tree on the Pettaquamscutt

Purpled light, a solemn pine,
Tethered on a salty stage.
Tide whispers secrets, inbound,
Christmas dreams on water paint.
Stillness waits, a frosted dawn.

Pettaquamscutt Christmas Tree

A Christmas Tree's Tide-Kissed Lullaby


'Twas a morn before Christmas, the air crisp and chill,
A hush on the Pettaquamscutt, the tide running still.
But wait! What's that yonder, a shimmer of light,
A solitary beacon, defying the night?

No star in the heavens, no comet so bright,
But a Christmas tree, anchored, a platform its site.
In purple hues dressed, its boughs gently sway,
Reflecting the dawn in a magical display.

The river below, in ripples it gleams,
A lullaby whispered in rippling streams.
The inbound tide whispers, a soft, burbling sound,
As secrets of Christmas in nature abound.

Some tinsel and baubles, some ornaments gleam,
With frost on its branches, a crystalline dream.
The wind, a soft chorus, hums carols so low,
As nature's own choir puts on a grand show.

But who needs the glitter, the bells and the cheer,
When beauty like this fills the atmosphere?
A symbol of hope, in the stillness it stands,
A Christmas tree's lullaby, sung by the sands.

Let's raise our eyes, travelers, weary and worn,
Let the Pettaquamscutt's magic be born.
A silent reminder, on this morn so serene,
That Christmas is love, in its purest form, seen.

Oh, Christmas tree, moored as currents roll by,
You whisper of wonders, as flood tide rises.
A beacon of peace, in the morning's soft light,
A Christmas tree's lullaby, sung through the night.
