How Do Dinosaurs Celebrate Christmas?

December 14, 2010


I’ve clearly been reading too much Jane Yolen

Is there anything better than an afternoon nap?
The kind where you linger, a purring cat on your lap?

Just laying there snug and watching leaves fall
While little-boy footsteps pad down the hall.

The clouds in the sky, so dark and so gloom
But the flicker of Christmas trees warm up the room

Homemade hot cocoa with lots of marshmallows
Bring a toasty aroma as you curl up in the pillows.

Is there anything better than boys in pajamas?
With a blankie or two, on the knees of their mamas?

To watch as a family while George Bailey sings
with sweet Donna Reed, and Clarence gets wings

Stirring and mixing and rolling with boys
Baking cookies of angels, and star-shapes, and toys

What a great time of year to stop and go slow
Lest this time blow by quickly, like a mid-winter snow

Joy to your family, and merry Christmas, each one
May God bless you and guide you, and bring a year full of fun!
