The Sled

I climbed silently out of my bed
And slipped down the stairs for a peek.
Under the tree, with runners bright red
Was a Flexible Flyer for me!
A bold red arrow showed it was fast
And the eagle showed it could fly.
Santa had granted my wish at last,
It’s the best gift, let no one deny 
And as I climbed back up to bed
I thought no boy as lucky as I.

    Those of who grew up in snow country probably appreciate it the best. Remember the flying suacers? And the toboggans? We had one that would hold about 10 people. We all had to help drag it to the top of the hill, pile on, and away we went. Get cold and wet... go iinside to get dry mittens and off we would go again. And then gather around a pot belly stove for steaming chocolate and marshmallows. Days to remember, for sure.

    I really enjoyed this, Craig! It makes me think of myself on Christmas mornings when I was a kid. Of course, no sled for me...not enough snow here, but we did used to pull each other on belly boards behind the three-wheeler....still have scars from that nonsense...;)

    Hey Craig! Nice, sentimental poem. Santa is so thoughtful sometimes... Simple and well written, transmits the magic of the gift-offering/receiving season. G.

    such sweet nostalgia. How old were you then? I am thinking maybe 50? heeheehee (the other day I watched my grandkids sledding down a nearby hill and I was very tempted to get on the sled and do it myself except i had no boots on my feet)
