A Child's Christmas

With wonderment and gleeful bliss she gave her mama a goodnight kiss. Then off to bend the stars till dawn and watch the snow adorn the lawn. Hoping so much to see a sleigh the wee one bowed her head to pray for Santa's safe journey and such. Really she didn't ask for much. Her nose frosted the window panes as she reached for some candy canes to feed to Santa's swift reindeer. How she could feel their presence near! Finally she lay down to sleep so quiet she didn't make a peep. She watched from her bed to the moonlit sky to see if Santa Claus really did fly! Fatigue took over;the little girl slept. Her guardian angel it's vigil kept. Off she slipped to a dreamland sweet till she heard the clatter of reindeer feet. It's morning and down the stairs she flies among the toys and a dolly that cries there stands a tricycle in pink and Mama gives her a smile and a wink! written Christmas Eve Dec.24th, 2013
