Better Watch Out
Reindeer huff keeping secrets,
as Santa of Christmas rides on mood,
bearing gifts with pure release
through continents of night's sweet dream.
North Pole bells ringing with magic
a sack of toys designed from far-off shores,
while thrilled kids wait for a visit
under a frothy roof, they stay.
From some other world, he is!
Made better in the winter chill,
creamy biscuits lay on rugs of eve.
Burying pinky toes neath tree's green springs.
wishes from letter, finely laced
armed with two, three difficult requests
hanging low beneath socks, brazen red.
A round belly ho-ho-hing!
For that final gleam into the sky
kids aplenty in anticipation remain,
twiddling across a dusky lamplight.
Suddenly,wonder at its best!
Leaving thankful tears,he remembers!
While sleigh tunes sing through the night,
and parents hug babes' shoulders dearly
Ole Nicholas slides through the land and laughs
As if to say, " better watch out,
Till I see you again, next year."
