Baby's First Christmas (Children)


So, this is Christmas morning...
everyone is here.
I don't really understand it
cause it isn't very clear,

but Mom and Dad are happy,
there's pretty ribbons everywhere,
lots of things that they call presents
and even paper I can tear.

They keep showing me this new stuff,
balls and books and even soxes...
they don't seem to know how fun it is
just playing with these boxes.

    This brightened my Saturday. Cool and fresh,
    put a smile on my face. It is nice to see fun
    things tried with childrens poetry.
    Rhyming Soxes And Boxes wont suit
    everyone, i thought that was fantastic! ! !
    Aimed at children, but pleased this
    (so called) adult.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Kindest Regards Slim. x. (Report) Reply

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
