Monbday Poetry Train - L'Arbre

Looking at the Tree/Regardant l'Arbre
With Sparkle in their eyes/ Avec des étincelles dans leurs yeux
Seeing their reflection/ Voyant leur réflection
In the the icy ornements/ Dans les décorations scintillantes
Wondering what could be / Se demandant ce qu'il peut
Hidden inside these boxes/ Y avoir de cacher dans ces boites
Asking us/ Nous demandant
How many time/ Oh, combien de fois
Is left before that Day/ Reste-t-il de temps avant ce Jour
Could they turn on the light/ Peuvent-ils allumer les lumières
What would they leave for Santa/ Que resteront-ils au Père Noël
Tonight/ Ce soir
In a last prayer/Dans une dernière prière
They wish for everyone well being/ Ils souhaitent pour le bien être de tous
But there is only one thing on their mind/Mais dans leur esprit, une seule chose
Is tomorrow/ Demain
When they would / Quand ils pourront
Finally/ Finallement
Open those presents/ Ouvrir ces cadeaux
Under the Tree/ Sous l'Arbre

    I love the opening lines:
    'With Sparkle in their eyes/ Avec des étincelles dans leurs yeux
    Seeing their reflection/ Voyant leur réflection
    In the the icy ornements/ Dans les décorations scintillantes'

    That's me, every Christmas, no matter how old I get. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas Jill!
