Bbbuuurrrr! Cold December morning
two weeks from Christmas Day
and counting as I looked across the morning's darkness,
stars still twinkling on high
Jack Frost reflections
graced the grass
Then within a instant I saw a Red flash!!
What? Rubing my eyes with a second look,
how could this be, Santa's timing mistook?
I called out saying, "Santa, its me, a grown up, Come here".
Peeking from around a nearby tree
there he stood staring back at me,
a smile so wide he could hardly hide
rosey cheeks and red dress suit
all decked out in his new black boots
as he wabbled toward my door.
Come in Santa, lets talk awhile
still he continued with that hugh bright smile.
I warmed some milk and made a bother,
pleasing him as he yawned and swallowed.
Inquiring where his sleigh might be
he sheepishly looked up and grined at me,
learning Santa would not squeak,
I removed the ropes from around his feet.
Said, Santa now your free to go,
don't forget the date you'll need to show!
Remember the request I placed in your pouch?
Otherwise, your secrets out!
"Santa", I said, as he walked away,
"DECEMBER 25th, Santa, that's the DAY"!
