“Twas the Night Before a Little Christmas”
By: Little Penny Berry (2018)
Twas the Night Before Christmas
When all through the house,
Not a Little was stirring,
Not even a mouse!
The littles were dreaming of presents at dawn,
In hopes that St. Nick would soon come along.
The babies were all snug in their beds,
While visions of paci’s danced in their heads.
And Daddy was snoring, exhausted from work,
While Mommy fell asleep with a naughty, sly smirk.
When out on the lawn there came a great bump,
The littles woke up and said, “Huh? What’s up?!”.
They sprang to the window to see who was around,
Their mouths were agape at the magic they found!
The moon was sparkling down on the snow,
The world had gone quiet, except for this show.
When what should their wide eyes see in the dark,
But Old St. Nick in his sleigh, swooping down to park.
He stumbled out of his sleigh, into the fresh fallen snow,
Then lifted his pack, many gifts in tow.
His mittened hand gave a point to his crew,
He called them by name and they brayed as if they knew.
“Now Dasher! Now Dancer! Now, Prancer and Vixen!
On Comet! On Cupid! On Donner and Blitzen!
To the top of the roof, let’s climb this great wall,
These little ones need me, now hurry away all!”.
They flew through the air, with a great sack of toys,
Santa held on tight, so that they didn’t make noise.
They landed on top of our steep, little roof,
And I heard the prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
The littles began to scamper, as they heard another sound,
It was Santa down the chimney, landing with a bound.
He was dressed all in fur, with a big, gold buckle,
And the littles laughed and gave a great chuckle.
Santa winked at the babes, as he went to work,
He opened his pack and turned with a jerk.
He placed boxes with bows, and little dolls too,
Toy airplanes that spun, and a new pair of shoes.
His eyes twinkled bright, as he set each gift down,
He laughed as the children cheered from all around.
He tipped his fur hat, and then gave a whistle,
And away he flew, up the chimney like a missile!
He sprang into his sleigh, like a spritely young elf,
And we laughed as we saw him in spite of our self.
Then into the night the sleigh flew out of sight,
And we heard him call, “Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”.
