A Southern Indiana Christmas


It’s Merry Christmas time in Southern Indiana
The farmers have picked all the beans and corn
Please, please will you come visit me Santa?
Our tree is up and lights and decorations do adorn

Our family is blessed with God’s good grace
We have a red tractor and a barn with a silo
Dad likes his old Farmall but I want a Case
So St. Nick, please give me a jolly “ho ho ho”

I love to eat barbeque and catfish, it’s true
And go to all the festivals to feed on German food
I root for IU and sometimes even Purdue
So please check your list carefully, I’ve been good

Mom’s preparing a baked ham and an apple pie
I’ll say my prayer and go fast to sleep
So please stopover Santa Claus, I won’t spy
I’m like Honest Abe, a promise I keep

Christmas morn, I’ll be at church with good folk
Hoping the good Lord blesses me with another year
A stocking full of coal, I’ll laugh at that joke
My gift is my salvation, of this, it’s crystal clear

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
