Christmas Joy


Santa baby
Deck the halls
Joy to the world, Fa La La La La
Where is my joy?
I feel so blue.
All the houses are decorated
and the trees all lit up,
I want to crawl under the covers.
Hustle and bustle,
Everyone shopping
Sharing good tidings,
I can't stop crying.
Putting on a smile
for all to see.
If I get it down on paper
It's no longer inside of me,
Screaming to get out.
Silent night,
Holy night,
I pray for relief.
Holy night,

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
