In fifty-nine, was just wee boy,
I had two heroes, one was Roy,
My other idol, was much bigger,
A golden horse, by name of Trigger.

My Christmas wish, was for a horse,
A Palamino, gold of course,
On my knees, each night would pray,
Could hardly wait, for Christmas Day.

On Christmas morn, I woke at dawn,
Crept downstairs, out to the lawn,
There to a tree, a rope was tied,
Fresh horse droppings, not yet dried.

I stood and gazed upon bare rope,
I felt the pain of shattered hope,
As from behind, I heard Dad say,
I guess your horse, got plumb away.

This was really good, was sad but was also comical. Great job combining humor & sadness.

In my house this would not have been an empty gift, though you wished for a horse , on the other end of the rope you were given a tree .
