Just One Candle Burning Low

Here is my entry for 'Scrap that Poetry' challenge. Challenge # 31

 I used the poem -Mistletoe a Christmas poem
by Walter de la Mare

Make it Snow !
Sitting under the mistletoe
(Pale-green, fairy mistletoe),
One last candle burning low,
All the sleepy dancers gone,
Just one candle burning on,
Shadows lurking everywhere:
Some one came, and kissed me there.
Tired I was; my head would go
Nodding under the mistletoe
(Pale-green, fairy mistletoe),
No footsteps came, no voice, but only,
Just as I sat there, sleepy, lonely,
Stooped in the still and shadowy air
Lips unseen - and kissed me there.
I have used cuts outs from old Christmas cards from 2001 as my embellishments

(The christmas cards I used from Christmas 2001 were from....McConville Family, Blight Family, Lindner Family, Mark and Daniella, Nan and Pa Bishop, Pauline And Frank, Deb and Isabelle(the cat!) and my mum)
Here is a close up :)

I am also going to add this to Gwens challenge TC26 'Recycling Christmas cards'
challenge at Soul Scrappers.
