    a letter from santa

    dear boys and girls
    thank you for the treats
    when traveling the world
    i get so hungry


    but the cookies and the fudge
    and the candy that you leave
    makes it easy enough
    to get through my journey


    ive watched you all with care
    seeing whos bad and good
    with open hearts you share
    like good boys and girls should


    underneath your trees
    ive left you toys and gifts
    all the things youll need
    to lift your spirits


    the twinkle in your eyes
    and smiles on your face
    moments caught in time
    which nothing can erase


    seems this year your lists were long
    ive brought you what i could
    besides you know you cant go wrong
    knowing youve been good

     

    just keep in mind the things you got
    and be thankful for the few
    while some children got alot
    others got less than you


    take the time to thank your moms
    and give your dads a hug
    sing with them a christmas song
    merry christmas ... from santa with love

    Imagination where innocence dreams unrestrained. Many need to find ways to instill such imagination in grown-up as well. a poet friend// RH Peat

    Dano//Well I think the big top is spinning already as the joy of giving is present each day in my poetry class on OP. And many have cherished the gift that they made for themselves through my simple offering. They have become stronger and more self-relient due to the class and what they have shared with others who took the poetry class. A community of song is still singing in wavelets from where the song of my little drip hit the bigger pond of OP. The ringlet expand as the giving spreads to yet others as the wrinkle in the water flows outward. The joy goes on for those the want to take the action and give reaction to yet others. And that is the beauty of song, it uplifts others like your story presents. A poet friend//RH Peat

    Full of holiday joy and spirit, this adorable poem seems to evoke the true nature of Santa Claus, and just what he would write if he ever wrote back. Best of Holiday Greetings to you and yours.

    glad i could lift your spirits a bit... thanks for commenting

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.
