Treasure Island

Christmas Day


Twas the day we call Christmas
In a rambunctious house
All the kiddies were giggling
They had spotted a mouse
Their presents were scattered
The parents seemed flattered
That they had behaved so well
Pray tell
No mischief no screaming
No new balls careening
All wrapping were trashed
A few boxes were gashed
Then there was a clatter
The dog broke the platter
Everyone laughed so hearty
This had been a good party
We hope your day went as well
Tummies full for a spell
In the morrow we’ll chatter
Bout the dog who broke the platter
And recall the good time
Everything went just fine
Merry Christmas to all
Wow the kids seemed so tall
Another year gone by
Grandma promised not to cry
As she waved them good bye

    What an adorable Xmas family poem. A sheer delight and a beautiful sigh of all together, including the dog as a family enjoying their brotherhood.
    Reminded me of T'was the night before Xmas poem I had my mother recite to me over, and over again until I had put my life in peril, but I didn't care, I loved it so
    Thank you for the good cheer and wishes, the same to you and family and dog. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
