Christmas Newsletter, poetic edition

‘Twas the night before Christmas so I wrote a poem, And what to my wondering eyes – no one’s home

To read all my prancing and pawing of hoofs, Or really all my kids’ accomplishments I’m proud of.

I in my MLM, Bob in his job, kids with their apps Have just settled down to show off our cat.

Away to the mailbox I fly like a flash Tear open my mail and then put down some cash

To pay for some photos, in new-fallen snow, To be used in this letter you’re reading, below.

So, you’ll hear me exclaim as this letter goes out of sight: Happy Christmas to All, until New Year’s Night!

Please, please, please enter the A Mused Poetry Contest. The deadline is this Friday!

    This is so much better than some of the doozies I have received in my time….either all doom and gloom, or me-me-us, or look how well we have done!

    Fun. I just finished reading a paperback romance by Janet Dailey called “A Capital Holiday” (350pp).
    I’ve also read a fun murder mystery by Monica Ferris (240pp) “Crewel Yule”!
