Santa's Promise

Santa’s Promise


My Granny was riding a reindeer,
out back on the lawn by our shed.
It looked like a bull riding contest
but the horns were a rack instead.

My Papa was sitting and watching
while he cheered for the bucking steer.
Oh Dad, I don’t know what you’re drinking
but that bull is a North Pole deer.

While Granny was hooting and clicking,
‘ole Santa appeared on our shed.
“Now, Granny I kept up my promise
and Dancer is leading the sled.”

“Tonight is the eve of the Christ birth.
It’s a night of world love and peace.
The magical sleigh of believing
starts midnight with love gifts apiece.”

He waited while Granny dismounted,
then Dancer proceeded to bow,
about that time, Dad had miscounted…
He passed out while toasting the cow.

    VEry cute. I see that you have great meter. No wonder you were familiar with Rondeau form. I find that kind of form is excellent for many kinds of topics!

    I went through a period of trying to write in different forms to see if I could as a challenge to myself. Some forms I liked and some forms I don't ever intend to try again. Thank you for reading and have a Merry Christmas. Janet
