Upon the Wings of Love!
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
When Virginia was younger,
She didn't need reasons to believe
In Santa. Who needs to write letters,
When faith still is strong enough?
Encouragement is for those
Who lack courage, like a cane
For the crippled! I jumped in vain,
Trying to jump as high as the child,
From the sidewalk clear to the bench!
Reasons expressed in many words
Mean nothing to those with the strength
And the courage to make the leap
Of faith, who, like the birds
Of heaven fly with nothing to keep
Them from rising up onto a bench.
The hardest things to swallow
For me are a cinch
For a child, and a finch!
Indeed, I believe I can
Rise over the divisions, fly above
What weighs me down,
Upon the wings of love!
Author's Notes: "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus" is a phrase from an editorial called Is There a Santa Claus?. The editorial appeared in the September 21, 1897, edition of The (New York) Sun and has since become part of popular Christmas folklore in the United States. It is the most reprinted editorial in any English-language newspaper.
