How Do Dinosaurs Celebrate Christmas?
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.
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!
