Tony is six and sister, Grace, is three. Today they're as happy as they can be They grinned from ear to ear Because Christmas was near To the woods they would go to find a tree! They were too excited and couldn't wait After breakfast they climbed over the gate 'cross the meadow they walked Happily, they both talked About how this year Christmas would be great. When they reached the woods, winds started to blow It began to rain, which turned into snow Blue skies darkened to gray Grace's hat flew away Tree branches were all swaying, to and fro Grace was frightened when she saw two big eyes Tony hugged her when he heard her cries "It's just an old owl, Grace. We're in her nesting place. Watch and she will spread her wings when she flies." Sheltered beneath the Christmas tree they'd found They heard a dog barking, Diggs, their blood hound Grace and Tony, safe at last Night was darkening fast Dad cut down the tree and they were home bound That night, the tree glowed with bright twinkling lights Dad and Mom said they'd given them a fright "We're so sorry," they said. Before they went to bed. With their prayers said, they whispered, "Good night" November 25, 2022 Children's Limericks Contest Sponsored by Eve Roper

Love these poignant limericks which feature a brother and sister at an early impressionable age. Good writing, as usual, Jenna.
