Julia

Santa Julia

‘Twas weeks before Christmas

When all thru the house,

Not a creature was stirring.

Well, at least not the lizard.

The stockings weren’t hung

But the lit tree was there

And wee little Julia

Thought it looked kind of bare.

IMG_8462

She crept up the staircase

Then dashed to the table

To attend secret doings

As best she was able

IMG_8466

She struggled with tape

And paper and ribbon

Then summoned her family

To see what they’d been given.

A rubber ball for Daddy

A bunny for her brother

And one for herself

And a jewelry box for mother.

Not new, nor surprising

These quickly wrapped trinkets.

And yet Christmas came early,

For Julia did think it.
