Snowball, Shel Silverstein

I made myself a snowball,
As perfect as could be,
I thought I'd keep it as a pet,
And let it sleep with me.

I made it some pyjamas,
And a pillow for its head,
Then last night it ran away,
But first - it wet the bed!


A Chubby Snowman, Anon

A chubby little snowman
had a carrot nose.
Along came a bunny,
and what do you suppose?

That hungry little bunny,
looking for some lunch,
Grabbed that snowman's nose,
Nibble, nibble, crunch!


The Funniest Face, Anon

The funniest face
looked out at me
From a silver ball
On the Christmas Tree.

At first I thought
It was Santa's elf,
But I looked again and
It was just myself!

 


Puppies' Christmas, Anon


It's the day before Christmas
And all through the house
The puppies are squeaking
An old rubber mouse.


The wreath which had merrily
Hung on the door
Is scattered in pieces
All over the floor.


The stockings that hung
In a neat little row
Now boast a hole in
Each one of the toes.


The tree was subjected
To bright-eyed whims,
And now, although splendid,
It's missing some limbs.

I catch them and hold them.
"Be good", I insist.
They lick me, then run off
To see what they've missed.

And now as I watch them
The thought comes to me,
That theirs is the spirit
That Christmas should be.

Should children and puppies
Yet show us the way,
And teach us the joy
That should come with this day?

Could they bring the message
That's written above,
And tell us that, most of all
Christmas is love.

Ode to Baubles
There's a thousand baubles hanging on our tree,
That's one for you, and nine hundred and ninety nine for me.

But it's a time to share so here's what we'll do,
We'll go out and buy nine hundred and ninety eight baubles for you!

What the Dickens
As snow is falling follow the star,
Turn left at the lights, it's not very far
Just over the hill bells may be ringing,
You'll hear joy and laughter, maybe angels singing.
In front is a glorious sight for your eyes -
Come inside to our store, Colour Supplies.
Our Emporium is open for your delight
With gifts and more for Christmas night.

by J&K


There once was a reindeer called Rudolph
Who plays an important role
To lead other reindeer and pull a sleigh
All the way from the North Pole.

On Christmas Eve they start to fly
Around the world and back
To spread good cheer to boys and girls
With gifts from Santa's sack.
