I’m a beautiful angel like you’ll see on a tree My snow globe plays a carol it is so Christmasy I’m trapped in this snow globe, I want to get out I bang on the casing and I scream and I shout Bobby picks the globe and he shakes it so hard so the snow swirls inside like it does in the yard He then casts me aside leaving me on the table and the kitten stares at me, she is called Mable Mable bats me around and I crash to the floor she’s found a new toy, and bats me with her paw My snow globe home slides across the front room Then the father treads on it and seals my doom The snow globe is smashed, water leaks everywhere And all the snow’s disappeared, oh it just isn’t fair Bobby’s mother says she’s got a clever idea I’ll take pride of place on her cake every year Written for contest .... then I discovered Bobby wanted Free verse! 11/22/19

Jan, This was such a nice poem too. And that Mable, such a cool name for a kitty. My snow globe plays a nice tune, have to find it again. Seasons greetings, -Richard

Hi Jan! I did the exact same thing with mine. It was just screaming to rhyme lol. I would rather be in a cake than in a snow globe any day to be fair!

Oh Jan, I have made that mistake before. I enjoyed your imaginative poem and too bad you can't enter it. My daughter is flying in for Thanksgiving and I am very pleased to be able to share it with her this year. Blessings, Connie : ) xxoo
