Oh Santa Claus, dear Santa Claus

I’m writing to you just because

Christmas is coming round the bend

It’s time to share it with a friend

Though not so simple as it seems

As Christmas nears it fosters dreams.

It is a season to feel young

With Yuletide carols to be sung

It would be nice if we’d return

To days when candles would be burned

When children small were told the tales

Of magic sleighs that had no sails.

 

The reindeer were believed to fly

Across the reaches of the sky

But let’s pretend a moment more

That elves may work in Santa’s store

It’s true I’ve never seen an elf

Except ceramic on a shelf.

Well never mind, this too shall pass

Like Alice through her looking glass

Until next year, same time, same place

Anticipating your embrace

I pray I’m not too old by then

Forgetting our remember when !

 

ISN’T IT WONDERFUL TO SEE WITH THE HEART OF A CHILD ?

I saw an owl perched in a tree

He meant to hide himself from me

He seemed so quiet, somber, wise

I was not fooled by his disguise.

Oh mister owl you cannot sing

What message is it that you bring

You turn your head and blink your eyes

You will not win a beauty prize.

It is your wisdom that we seek

But who can learn, you do not speak

This wizened omen of the day

He turned his head and flew away !
