‘Tis the month before Christmas and all through the town
The tinsel, lights, (snow?) across Nashville abound.
And all over town in arenas and halls
From Legislative Plaza and to Rivergate Mall;
From Belle Meade Plantation to Riverfront Park;
Nashville glows all day, is ablaze after dark.
Concerts and pageants, reunions and greeting
Shopping and singing, decorating and eating.
From Amy Grant’s Christmas to the Messiah’s strains
New memories are made, old memories remain.
2000 passes like a star shooting by;
2001 beckons; the New Year is nigh.
So enjoy the holidays; they’re here for a reason
To honor the Christ Child whose birth birthed this season.
Take pause for a moment amidst all the joy.
To thank God for sending the blessed baby boy.
So, to fans of the Titans, the Preds, Sounds, and Kats
Patrons of the Rep, Symphony and TPAC.
To all of our readers from my home in Bellevue:
Merry Christmas to all and Happy New Year, too!
