On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

…nine Fir trees sparkling.

You sparkle in the sun and warm my heart.  Your colors glisten like a polished mineral from the earth and I can see your natural design.  At first you must be broken into pieces, sorted and measured.
Put together with love and care you rise strong into something so beautiful.  Though delicate you are supported with a rigid frame and always hold together.  You resist wind, rain, and snow.  Your needles arranged make patterns and tell stories. You are familiar and welcoming.  As your branches fall just in the right place, I know I am home.
