Ah memories. Great ones. Thank you.
I enjoyed the ride down Memory Mountain with you. I could feel the rhythm of the car--a good thing for a poem!

I love the images of this. I could picture it so clearly.

Probably just me, but I found myself stumbling over your ABBA rhyme scheme. Kept wanting it to be ABAB (LOL must be the legalist in me!).

Lovely.
This is a keeper! I really like the nostalgia and then the way the last line brings it back around.
I love the memories this poem brings to me. :-) Thank you! Great job.

Nice variation on poetry. Good memories too.

Excellent poetic rhyming and cadence...can the next generation capture the magic of it all with all the distractions we give them? Thanks for sharing.

This made me excited for Christmas this year, with our first grandkids almost 2 whom may kind of get into the spirit and joy of it this year! Good writing!

Wow, I'd love to see a sight like that! Very lovely and gives me such anticipation of the lights and views of Christmas!

This was pure pleasure from beginning to end. By the last stanza I found myself staring at an original Thomas Kincaid master piece in my mind. Well done.

I really like your rhyme pattern and the way it makes this flow. Very creative work (I was trying to comment after bricks, but for some reason it wouldn't let me. *sigh*)
In so few words you embraced three generations with heart-felt emotion...quite an accomplishment!
