~~ A Christmas Story ~~

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house

Not a creature was stirring…, except one little gray mouse

The dog asleep on a chair by the fire

Soon joined by the cat, when she chose to retire

Humans all sleeping tucked tight in their beds

Dreams about Christmas danced ’round in their heads

He scouted the house from his spot by the broom

Making sure that all was safe in the warm, quiet room

He scampered ‘cross the room, feeling happy and free

Around past the furniture and he ran up the tree

Where from limb to limb popcorn garlands were strung

And from it, well spaced, small cookies were hung

Up the tree, to a limb, ever higher he scampered

Crunching and munching and feeling well pampered

Then from a room up above he heard a noise

And thought that it might be one of the boys

Sneaking down the stairs quiet and quick

Hoping to catch a brief glimpse of St. Nick

Down from the tree and across the room

He scampered to his hiding place behind the broom

All was quiet as he went back to his hole

and dropped the armful of popcorn safe in his bowl

He crawled into the matchbox that served as his bed

Pulling the covers up over his head

Then later that night, though he didn’t have proof

He thought he heard sleigh bells high up on the roof

Next morning what a wonderful sight did he see

But piles of presents there under the tree

And a box full of popcorn and cookies and cheese

The little mouse smiled as big as you please

For Santa had come to the little green house

And left a Christmas gift for the little gray mouse.
