‘Twas the night before Christmas
and all through the house
all the creatures were stirring.
Even the mouse!
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
in hopes that St. Claws soon would be there.
Mom in her kerchief and I in my cap
had just settled down for a long winter’s nap.
When out on the lawn arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear
but a miniature sleigh
and one old horse.
All the reindeer were sick
so Santa had to rely
on one old horse
that just couldn’t fly.
When Santa was let in
through the front door,
he immediately scared
the cats on the floor.
The cats were excited
to see what they’d get
as Santa delivered the gifts
to each pet.
Having finished his work,
Santa went to the door.
He climbed in his sleigh
and started to snore.
As the horse moved on
and was soon out of sight,
Santa was dreaming about the catnip
he would have later tonight.
Hope you enjoyed this. Want to wish each one of my readers a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2017! God bless each and every one of you.
