Put on your boots, bring out your sled. Let's fetch our Christmas tree, Dad said. We'll have it trimmed by first owl's light Before the blizzard strikes tonight.

Along with Dad, Mother, and Purr-dy Cat, the children follow a winding path through the snowy wood. They walk past stonewalls and fallen logs. Uphill and downhill they hunt for that special tree as the wind blows the blue out of billowing clouds in a wintry sky.

When the children spot the proud spruce, they know it is the tree for them. Moose tracks circle its trunk. A black-capped chickadee flits from its branches. A snowshoe hare bounds from its shadow to the edge of the glen. Purr-dy Cat sharpens his claws on the tree's soft bark.

Using a bow saw, the little loggers fell the tree. They load their prize onto the sled and head home. The sky darkens, and soon the laughing moon replaces the sun. They follow their own tracks going back, but the path seems different in moonlight. Different, too, are the spicy perfumes of the wood, now mixing with colder air—pungent pine, fir balsam, birch, and muskiness from a foxes' lair.

Late that night, after the children help trim the tree and after they set up the holy crèche scene of the first Christmas in Bethlehem, they gaze at their work.

An unexpected surprise brings added reward. It is as if the fragrant incense of the king's gift of that first Christmas is wafting across continents and centuries—

. . . the gift of frankincense, Precious and sweet with scent intense, Like that they breathed there where they stood— Wild perfumes from a winter wood.

About the Author:

Margaret Jane Jones wrote and illustrated Wild Perfumes from a Winter Wood after a family adventure to bring home a Christmas tree from their own Red House Wood in the State of New Hampshire. Drawing from her teaching experience—lively years of working with children—Margaret Jane Jones writes for children. Wild Perfumes from a Winter Wood is a picture book in verse. Summer on the Sun-Up and Christmas on the Sun-Up are historical fiction chapter books based on her life growing-up on a ranch in the State of Washington. Her practiced hand in the field of art brings her books to life with illustrations. Ms. Jones is a graduate of Washington State University with majors in both education and fine art. She taught in elementary schools in the states of Florida, Virginia, and Oklahoma. One year, as a Fulbright Exchange Teacher, she delighted in teaching in Yorkshire, England. Prior to her career in teaching, she lived and worked in the Middle East—Lebanon and Saudi Arabia. During summers in New Hampshire, the author and her husband climb mountains, walk hidden wilderness trails with the family, and work to save wilderness lands for future generations. During winters in Florida, the author lives with her husband where wild rabbits play in the yard.
